The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound effect on all people in Canada, including our Heart & Stroke community. We hope to understand its impacts on you and your health, how you have managed and adapted, and your needs going forward.

Part of our mission at Heart & Stroke is to provide helpful resources, support and information to people living with heart conditions, stroke, or vascular cognitive impairment, as well as their family members and caregivers of those with lived experience (i.e. family or informal/unpaid regular in-person support person) during this challenging time and well beyond

This survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. All responses will be completely anonymous. No individual will be able to be identified, and only aggregated (combined) results will be shared inside Heart & Stroke and publicly. The survey results will be shared in our communications, reports and website in 2020. They will help shape our priorities.

Please enter the survey at the following link: COVID-19 Impact Survey

Veuillez noter qu’une version en français sera accessible très bientôt

Please note, a French version of this survey will be available soon

Once you launch the survey, you will be asked to select the appropriate version to complete – one for people with lived experience and one for caregivers.

By completing the survey, you will have a chance to WIN:

1 of 5 Heart & Stroke Classic Adult Unisex Zip-Up Hoodies *

Note: if you are both a PWLE and also a caregiver and wish to complete both surveys, you are welcome to do so. Please complete one then launch the other and complete that one.

Thank you for taking the time to share how COVID-19 has impacted you.

Please note:

A medical emergency is still a medical emergency. Those witnessing or experiencing a heart attack, stroke or cardiac arrest must call 9-1-1 to get immediate medical attention, even during the coronavirus disease outbreak.

 

Anyone living with ongoing chronic disease such as heart disease or stroke who experiences a change or worsening in symptoms should seek timely medical treatment by contacting their healthcare team or going to their local hospital.
