    This support group is online.


    ,   

Description

Both patients and family members experience major lifestyle changes following a stroke. To help adjust to life after stroke, we offer a stroke support group for patients and families. In addition to group discussion that offers encouragement and support, each meeting includes a brief presentation by a medical expert. We welcome anyone whose life has been touched by a stroke, regardless of where they were hospitalized or treated.

The Aphasia Support Group currently partners and meets with the Stroke Support Group. Aphasia is a disorder involving language comprehension and communication, commonly occurring after a brain injury, such as stroke. Persons living with Aphasia and their families are invited to develop a social network to enhance their communication and well-being through meeting others who are also living with this communication disorder.

NOTE: In an effort to protect the health of our participants, the Stroke Support Group is now online. Email us for instructions on how to attend.

Groups are the second Friday of every month from 1-2 p.m.
