Needs Statement

According to the 2015 publication Physical environments and community reintegration post stroke: qualitative insights form stroke clubs “In the context of stroke, community reintegration can be defined as a person’s return to everyday functional activities, instrumental activities of daily living, recreational and social activities, and interactions with family members and others (Pang, Eng, and Miller 2007). It is, therefore, a relatively broad concept concerned with participation in various life domains. We focus here on community reintegration because evidence suggests it captures processes which are important to stroke survivors (although no judgement is passed on whether or why these processes should be considered important) (Bergström et al. 2015; Wood, Connelly, and Maly 2010). That poor community reintegration has been associated with depression, social isolation, a poor quality of life (Wood, Connelly, and Maly 2010) and reduced life satisfaction (Astrom, Asplund, and Astrom 1992) underlines its importance.”  Katherine Brookfield & Gillian Mead (2016) Physical environments and community reintegration post stroke: qualitative insights from stroke clubs, Disability & Society, 31:8, 1013-1029, DOI: 10.1080/09687599.2016.1223606
