Your medical information. On you. Keeping you safe.

A stroke is a sudden 'brain attack' that occurs when the blood flow to part of the brain is cut off. Usually, this is due to a blood clot. It usually comes out of the blue, which may bring unexpected changes to your life. Lack of confidence and low self esteem can be common due to feelings of frustration that you cannot do things you could do before the stroke.

We are aware that regaining confidence after a stroke is one of the top priorities defined by stroke survivors. It is important to focus on regaining some independence and to continue to learn new skills whilst setting realistic goals.

Being a member of MedicAlert will help you take back control of your life and offer you and your family valuable peace of mind by keeping you safe in an emergency.

“Once I received my MedicAlert bracelet I gained the confidence to go out and do stuff. I had the confidence to be me again; I knew if I had an issue in public with my MedicAlert bracelet on, people could see what my condition was.”

Signs that you may be having a stroke

There are more than 100,000 strokes in the UK each year; that is around one stroke every five minutes1. In England, one in six people will have a stroke in their lifetime, with an estimated 30% having more than one stroke2.
