All about strokes: Prevention and Rehabilitation - with Dr. Hillel Finestone

What exactly is a stroke? Can I prevent it? How can I rehabilitate myself after one? If you’ve ever had these questions, then join this webinar with Dr. Hillel Finestone of the Elisabeth Bruyere Hospital to learn what having a stroke actually means. You will learn the risk factors of stroke and what it takes to rehabilitate after a stroke.

Dr. Finestone will also present a new memory aid called the ‘Maintenance of Transitions’ to enable you to remember what you need before leaving the house or going from one location to another.
