Building a Bridge to Better Stroke Survivor Outcomes

The transition from hospital to community settings is a critical time. Challenges for stroke survivors and care partners do not end when they leave the hospital. They require customized care and support.

For survivors

At Kandu, we know stroke recovery and we support survivors and care partners’ needs as they transition home from the hospital. We offer one-on-one personalized support through our app, licensed Kandu Navigators, and stroke recovery community.
