Yes! You Can Regain Your Memory After Stroke
Some degree of memory loss affects about a third of people who survive a stroke, according to the Canadian Heart and Stroke Foundation. However, 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. 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.
No medication is known to help reverse memory loss after a stroke, Meyers says. But where drugs won’t help, you can take steps with activities, therapy, brain training and rehabilitation to help recover your memory after stroke.
