Empowering Stroke Survivors

"It was really helpful to talk with my navigator about specific actions I needed to take during my recovery. I am so grateful that Kandu guided me through this life-changing event, introduced me to other stroke survivors, and helped me focus on what was important."

"Kandu allows us to continue to provide comprehensive care to patients after they leave our hospital. They are an important resource for patients when they need it most– during those first weeks and months after hospital discharge. Kandu's focus on the whole person ensure patients are set up for success."

Stroke Survivor, Guardian Ad Litem, & Kandu Program Graduate

"The access to solutions is very limited. There are no roads where we're going. We are excited about providing more care to more patients as we move forward and effectively changing this era of stroke care to one that actually considers the patient as the constant in the entire continuum."


Fred Khoshravi

CEO and Chariman, Imperative Care

"The insurance will let the doctor talk to you for the measured ten minutes, but Kandu can pick it up and take it from there. You have that extension, and I think that's exceptionally important. What would we have done without Kandu? This program surpassed even what family could do."



Care Partner, Former School Psychologist, and Kandu Participant

“Kandu is almost a protégé for how important is for a program to partner with health care agencies such as medical centers or even health care clinics. We're creating a way to help the team, helping the patient learn more about resources, helping them to reduce length of stay when possible."
