Stroke can happen to anyone, at any time, and at any age. Gear up with lifesaving information, not just for yourself, but also for your family, your friends, and others around you.
Stroke happens when blood flow to your brain is interrupted, and cells are damaged or die as a result. Among other physical signs, this damage can also lead to dementia. And it happens more than you may think. Shockingly, having a stroke more than doubles your risk of developing dementia.
