Different people have different interests. If you didn’t play basketball or the piano before stroke, it isn’t likely that you want to take up wheelchair basketball or learn to play the piano after your stroke. We really need to think about Different Strokes for Different Folks — or at least different activities that are aligned with your interests. So what are your interests and how do you find activities that fit your interest?
