Description
Breakthroughs in brain-imaging technology (CT scans, fMRIs, etc.) and pioneering brain research show the brain is still capable of learning and changing despite stroke or aging. Such findings give new hope for stroke survivors. That’s why this handbook was written. Rewire Your Brain, Rewire Your Life builds the case for hope, tells the stories of Strong Stroke Survivors and provides sound, practical counsel from Powerful Caregivers. Moreover, it outlines a program- RAISE (Reflect, Analyze, Identify, Start, and Evaluate) that can improve a survivor’s specific capability up to 40% or even higher. This handbook is designed to build capability and hope for those stroke survivors who feel they have reached their limits.
About the author
The author has practiced as teacher, school administrator, coach, lecturer, management trainer, business consultant, publisher, presenter, and author. Along the way, he acquired a Ph.D. and later on, a stroke that required brain surgery. When initially recovering from his stroke, Bob asked why his life had been spared (about 80% of those who experienced a similar stroke died immediately). His answer? To prevent stroke and help stroke survivors: his new life purpose. Beyond working on his own recovery, Bob started up a stroke support group in his community and acts as a ‘You’re the Cure’ volunteer advocate at both the state and federal levels for the American Heart & Stroke Association. Continuous learning guides Bob’s life. His writing career spans business writing (a book, a chapter, and several articles); screenwriting; memoirs (over 70 unpublished pieces so far); and stroke articles published in ‘Stroke Connection’ magazine. Bob currently resides (he has moved 35 times) in Mooresville, NC with his loving, supportive wife, Veronica and two mutually jealous shelties, Danny and Dixie. His son, Kevin, lives in Victoria, Canada, and his daughter, Laura (a model), resides on the most recent flight in or out of Charlotte.
