Stroke does not only affect physical health; it also has an impact on psychological health and many other aspects of survivors' lives. Nurses have a central role in stroke rehabilitation. This article discusses rehabilitation, the role of the nurse, psychological care, secondary prevention and life after stroke. It focuses on resuming driving and returning to work as these are particularly important for the one-quarter of stroke patients who are aged under 65.
