About 10,000 people suffer a stroke in Ireland every year with approx. 2,500 stroke-related deaths occur every year. Stroke disease is a common cause of memory problems (cognitive impairment/dementia) and mental health problems such as depression in later life. It is linked to epilepsy and is a common cause of falls and walking difficulties in later life.
