InterAct Stroke Support
InterAct Stroke Support is a charity dedicated to supporting stroke recovery by using professional actors to deliver a stimulating and rich variety of reading material specially selected to suit the needs of stroke patients.
InterAct’s 160 professionally-trained actors read in 18 hospitals and over 50 stroke clubs across the country as well as leading a variety of community projects.
Following a stroke (also referred to as a ‘brain attack’) reading and conversational interaction stimulates the brain, boosts memory and communication skills, improves mood and alleviates depression.
Post-stroke rehabilitation can be a long process and InterAct supports stroke survivors every step of the way, from hospital recuperation to community reintegration.
