Reading to stroke survivors
is invaluable post-stroke support
"This is wonderful. You stimulate my imagination and I can see it all."

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 works to stimulate memory, language, and lift spirits.
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.
