Stroke Unit (Farley and Breamore Ward)

Every year the Stroke Unit (located on Farley Ward and Breamore Ward) cares for around 350 local people who have had a stroke. Most people affected are over 65, but anyone can have a stroke, including children and even babies. Whilst some patients stay for a couple of days, others will need to spend many months in hospital.

The Stars Appeal works to support stroke patients and enable the doctors, nurses and therapists who care for them to provide the best, most effective treatment.

How the Stars Appeal makes a difference:

  • Enhancing the Stroke Unit environment, for example with furnishings, décor and artwork
  • State-of-the-art rehabilitation equipment
  • Garden for outdoor therapy
  • Facilities and refreshments for patients’ loved ones
  • Activities such as music, storytelling, dance, reading and playing games through our Stars Appeal Live project
  • Companionship and social activities like trips away from the ward through our Stars Appeal Engagers
  • Visits from foot care specialists
  • Free Wi-Fi
  • Stars Appeal water cooler and beverage trolley
  • Accommodation for patients’ loved ones
  • Visits from hospital Chaplains
