Feeding your brain with mind games and a healthy diet can help with memory after a stroke.
While drugs won’t help reverse memory loss after a stroke, activities, therapy, and rehabilitation can.
Some degree of memory loss affects about a third of people who survive a stroke, according to the National Stroke Association. But it’s good to know there are things you can do to help get your memory back.
“Memory deficits after a stroke can vary,” says Melissa (Muller) Meyers, OTD, an occupational therapist at MossRehab in Philadelphia. The extent of your memory loss can depend on how old you are, the severity of your stroke, where your stroke occurred, and even the support you have from family and friends.
