The CRSN has created this page to list some of the relevant COVID-related resources for stroke survivors and caregivers at this difficult time. These have been compiled in response to the pandemic, but there are many more resources that you should see. Click on the toolbar above for stroke care information, guides, and peer support pages. 

If you or your loved one is having a symptom of stroke, call 911. Don't drive, call 911 F.A.S.T.  Treatment will begin in an ambulance while travelling to a stroke hospital.
