Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland (CHSS) has launched a pilot project in Perth Royal Infirmary to provide additional support to stroke survivors who are experiencing physical disability as well as communication difficulties.
The charity’s new vision is No Life Half Lived – with the ambition that everyone in Scotland gets the care and support they need, when and where they need it.
In Tayside there are potentially over 77,000 living with the effects of serious chest and heart conditions and stroke. Most people in Scotland will not have access to the support or rehabilitation services that would help them live healthier lives and CHSS want to change that.
By 2021 they will double the number of people they support by launching the No Life Half Lived Support Service, and increasing the support available through their specialist nurses, rehabilitation support, community groups, advice and information.
No Life Half Lived, will address the unmet needs of people who are living with their conditions – social, emotional and physical – across Scotland’s communities.
