Environment enrichment for young stroke survivors

Help young stroke survivors to improve their quality of life by improving cognitive function.

Cognitive impairment is common in young stroke survivors, and these impairments severely impact activities of daily living and quality of life.

This study from Edith Cowan University aims to address the lack of effective cognitive treatments available for young individuals post stroke by evaluating the feasibility and therapeutic utility of a 12-week telehealth-delivered Environment Enrichment program. The program includes physical exercise, nutrition, and sleep guidance.

Participation in this study will involve:

  1. An exercise stress test and cognitive assessments, followed by a 12 week intervention period with personalised telehealth guidance on:
    • Physical activity
    • Nutrition
    • Sleep
  2. Follow-up assessments and feedback on your experience with the trial (ECU Joondalup Campus).
