Welcome to Post-Discharge Stroke Support (PDSS)
PDSS bridges the gap that exists between hospital discharge and life changing support that is required post-stroke.
In South Africa, and similarly around the world, millions are bravely fighting stroke just like you. Our objective is to connect you with this brave community.
This portal allows us to provide opportunities for stroke survivors, including their families and caregivers, to receive support, specific and appropriate to their own circumstances. This will enable you to regain your dignity and pride, which will give you the confidence and belief in yourself, and ease your re-entry into society, post-stroke.
No need to feel alone anymore, we are here for YOU!
In order to build a network, we have identified four categories, which in our opinion; cover all stakeholders in the world of stroke.
By registering on PDSS, you are contributing to wonderful success stories of individuals who have beaten the odds and prevented stroke destroying their lives!
