Everyday activities such as dressing, feeding and bathing can be difficult to carry out following a stroke. The use of adaptive equipment and techniques can make these tasks easier. For example, cutlery / utensils and non-slip mats can make eating easier. An occupational therapist (O.T.) can offer advice on ways to become more independent at everyday activities. Information about equipment can also be found at Assist Ireland
Resuming leisure pursuits can also be made easier by using aids such as card shufflers, golf aids and books on tape.
