Exploring the Link Between Strokes and Memory Loss

Last updated 3 years ago

Many people associate stroke with loss of physical function. As this video discusses, stroke can impact cognitive abilities as well.

Stroke care experts note that despite the location or severity of a stroke, it often affects memory in sufferers. This complication can make it difficult for patients to recall information without assistance. To effectively cope with memory loss, doctors offer several options. One, patients can create lists to which they can refer throughout the day. Two, stroke sufferers can make audio recordings and replay them later if necessary. Three, individuals with memory loss can take advantage of medical aids such as pill boxes to serve as visual reminders of their prescription usage.

Northside Hospital and The Neuroscience Institute can help stroke sufferers manage their physical and cognitive complications. For more information, call our St. Petersburg hospital at (888) 598-9586.
