Episode 22 – Hidden disability

Many of the challenges that people face after stroke, including fatigue, memory loss, even speech difficulties, aren’t visible to those around them. In this podcast, we talk about the impact of invisible and hidden disabilities, how to make others understand and some things you can do to live well while dealing with them.
 
We speak to stroke survivor and StrokeSafe Ambassador Toni Arfaras, psychologist and researcher Professor Ian Kneebone, and social worker Siobhan McGinniss from StrokeLine.
