Other Cognitive Functioning Difficulties: The Key Facts

Did you know that….

Around a quarter of people who have a stroke
are of working age.

What it’s like to have Other Cognitive Functioning Difficulties at work

‘I really wanted to return to work after my stroke, but I wasn’t prepared for how tiring it would be. My employer made sure my desk and chair were modified so I was comfortable, and they agreed to a change in my shift patterns, so I could avoid the rush hour, which really helped.’

Following a stroke or brain injury, an individual may experience a number of cognitive difficulties, including:

  • Physical changes - the way they move or the things they are able to do, such as drive or operate machinery, or even sit at a desk

  • Cognitive changes - they way they process and store information. Their memory may be affected, or the way they read, or their ability to tell time, for example.

  • Behavioural - their self-control may be affected, or their motivation. They may find it much harder to be in large groups of people, or to work on one task for a long period of time.
