Description

Led by Mark Dunham, this group discusses speech issues that often accompany a stroke including slurred speech, inability to get your words out, and difficulty in perceiving messages.


We’re a fun group and we have guest speakers, play games, and share our experiences! Your caregivers are welcome to introduce you, if needed.

Group Goals

1.      Survivor—want to be vital, not victim
2.      Acceptance—who we are (AAD) through stroke
3.      Hope—we can get better, not just limited to AAD
4.      Respect—honor ourselves and others
5.      Integrity—confidentiality, dealing with others
6.      Service—helping others
7.      Courage—facing truth about ourselves and our potential

  

This group meets weekly on Wednesdays.
