About the follow-up care

Each hospital in the Netherlands provides different follow-up care. Many hospitals have a special outpatient clinic for follow-up care, but this may also be arranged via a home care organization. Often there are regional agreements in place. You can discuss this with your treating physician. The follow-up care is often not tailored specifically to people who have suffered a stroke at a young age.

The standard of care for CVA/TIA below describes the standard for good care offered to patients following a stroke, from the patient’s perspective. The standard of care offers a guideline for collaboration of professionals in the care chains, with the care being tailored to the wishes and needs of people who have suffered a stroke and their loved ones.
