When it comes to stroke, minutes can save lives and loved ones.
“Our goal in working together to prevent and treat stroke is really to give people back those essential moments. This is not only walking again, talking again, and eating again, as we used to focus on for a ‘good’ outcome. These moments are dancing, laughing, traveling, holding hands on an evening walk, and all those things that make life a good life,” says Dr. Aleksander Tkach, Interior Health's Stroke Services Medical Director.
“In a stroke every second counts. Every second we save by all working together to treat a stroke gives people back those moments in life that are precious.”
