Welcome to the Bridges website
Bridges stroke self-management is about supporting people who’ve had a stroke to take control. It’s about supporting stroke survivors to use strategies that help self-management such as reflecting on their achievements, making a plan to work towards goals they’ve set themselves, and recording their progress.
Bridges' main focus is our stroke self-management programme, which was designed in close collaboration with stroke survivors. The self-management programme is made up of two parts:
1) Training workshops for health and social care practitioners who work with people who’ve had a stroke. These workshops teach practitioners about self-management principles, and how to use the Bridges approach on a one to one basis with stroke survivors.
2) A ‘stroke workbook’ which practitioners work through with clients to support their self-management. The workbook includes individual stories and strategies suggested by stroke survivors, as well as a space for the client to record personal goals and successes
