Sizing Up Strokes in Seniors [INFOGRAPHIC]

Last updated 2 years ago

Strokes can happen to anyone, at any time, but they are most prevalent in seniors. About 75% of strokes occur in people over age 65, and the risk of having a stroke spikes every 10 years after age 55. Seniors may need specialized care after experiencing a stroke. Stroke aftercare depends on the severity of the brain damage, and seniors may need in-patient rehab and in-home care from family members as they relearn basic daily activities, like dressing themselves. Fawcett Memorial Hospital in Port Charlotte—a Certified Primary Stroke Center—offers this infographic to educate about stroke risks. Fast emergency care is the key to good outcomes when strokes occur, so please share this important information with family and friends.
