I'ts Make May Purple, the Stroke Association's annual stroke awareness month. Find out how we can all help raise funds for vital research and support stroke survivors. 

This May Bluebird Care Trafford is supporting ‘Make May Purple’, the Stroke Association’s annual stroke awareness month.

The Stroke Association is the UK’s leading stroke charity and believes strokes can and must be prevented. They fund vital research into this challenge and work with scientists and researchers. They also work directly with stroke survivors and their families as well as health and social care professionals.

Stroke changes lives in an instant

Over 1 million people across the UK are rebuilding their lives’ after having a stroke. Make May Purple is back this month to help the Stroke Association fund vital research into their care and treatment.

Let’s Make May Purple

There are plenty of lively ways to take part in Make May. Wear something purple to show your support. Bake some purple treats. Set challenges to raise funds using the Make May Purple sponsorship form. For full details visit the Stroke Association website and find out more about the campaign and how you can get involved.

Rebuilding lives after stroke

We’re privileged to help stroke survivors every month of the year. Our care team supports customers in rebuilding their lives after a stroke. It’s hugely rewarding work and our customers and their families inspire us every day with their tenacity and courage.

Homecare with a difference

We’re very proud that many of them tell us our care has made a real and measurable difference to them. Our carers are trained in advanced techniques that go far beyond simple support with daily tasks. This is a new standard of homecare that significantly improves customers’ quality of life.

Our care manager Amy Stone sees first hand how stroke devastates lives: “A stroke can happen in an instant but the damage can last a lifetime. My team sees this first hand and we do all we can to help stroke survivors and their families. The Stroke Association provides vital support and research and we all need to promote their cause. We’re proud to help Make May Purple and raise vital funds for their brilliant research."
