Causes And Risk Factors For Strokes In Women

Women Live Longer

Approximately fifty-five thousand more women will experience a stroke than men each year. Women who have strokes are more likely to have a more negative impact from the event simply because they live longer. According to the National Stroke Association, women may suffer more from a stroke because they are more likely to live alone at the time. They are also more likely than men to live in a long-term health care center after a stroke, and they tend to have a tougher recovery.
