Abstract

Date Presented 3/30/2017

An ischemic stroke survivor who persistently reports anxiety or depression feelings throughout the 1st year poststroke is 12.6 times more likely to require assistance for daily activities compared with a survivor who makes no such report, results that suggest a need for enhanced screening and treatment.
