Tips for Recognizing a Stroke
Posted on Oct. 30, 2013

In recognition of World Stroke Day, this post is focused on stroke warning signs and prevention. Awareness is so important because time lost is brain lost—the longer therapy is delayed, the more brain cells die. Because treatment within the first three hours of stroke makes a dramatic difference in mortality and long-term disability, you should familiarize yourself with the following acronym to identify a stroke:

  • Face – When he/she smiles does one side of the face droop?
  • Arms – Can he/she raise both arms without one drifting downward?
  • Speech – Is his/her speech slurred?
  • Time – If you observe these signs, call 911 immediately.
Other possible symptoms include:
  • A sudden headache that gets worse when changing positions, bending or coughing
  • Change in alertness (e.g. sleepiness, unconsciousness)
  • Loss of senses (e.g. difficulty hearing, tasting, seeing, feeling pain or pressure)
  • Confusion or loss of memory
  • Dizziness, vertigo or loss of coordination
  • Numbness or tingling on one side of the body

About Randy


I help clients prepare for their unexpected death or disability. Using legal documents such as Wills, Trusts, Power of Attorney, LLCs and more, we can ensure that your hard-earned assets go to the right people, at the right time, and in the right way–and are managed by someone who is competent, skilled and trustworthy.

I also help clients identify their non-monetary legacy (values, wisdom, principles, beliefs, life experiences, family name and a commitment to certain charitable causes) and how to effectively pass that legacy on to family and others.

Take time to consider the value of your life to others. Don't miss opportunities to leave a greater legacy than just money.
