Today marks the start of international Paediatric Stroke awareness week!
Did you know that a stroke could occur at any age? In our Paediatric group two age groups are identified - Neonatal strokes and Childhood strokes. These age groups are identified by their differences in risk factors, physiology, clinical presentation, therapeutic journey and prognostic implications.

Interesting fact for the day!
It's #RoaldDahlDay! Did you know that Roald Dahl's The BFG was inspired by his wife, Patricia Neal’s aphasia, a common condition that affects people’s language and communication after stroke.
The BFG's quirky made up language included these curiosities.
What are some of your favourite made up Roald Dahl words?
Awesome to work with the #Careserve team at Paarl #Spescare. They are fantastic in helping us serve the best adapted meals to our patients with swallowing difficulties, otherwise known as #dysphagia

A sub-acute hospital is an inpatient facility that acts as a bridge, transitioning patients from hospital care back to their homes or another care destination in their community. In other words, patients who are stable, but still require nursing care or physical rehabilitation, can be transferred to a sub-acute or rehabilitation hospital like Spescare http://bit.ly/2hsvaNE
