With proper care, you can prevent strokes and the disabilities they cause


Anyone can have a stroke, even a child or infant. Up to 80 percent of strokes could have been prevented, so make time today to bring in a family member or friend for a checkup if you have a concern about stroke risk.

Call 911 at the first sign of a stroke
The FAST acronym is an easy way to remember the symptoms and warning signs of a stroke and what to do:
 
  • F – Facial paralysis
  • A – Arm weakness
  • S – Speech difficulties
  • T – Time to call 911

Do not ignore these warning signs, even if they go away. Stroke is a serious medical emergency, and the quicker you receive treatment, the better your chances for surviving the stroke with minimal disability.


You may have other medical problems, including a transient ischemic attack, (TIA).
These “mini-strokes” are also very serious. Call 911 for help.
