Stroke Support Group

Stroke survivors, their family members and care providers learn more about living a full life after stroke.

“Social support is important in stroke recovery. Social isolation has been called a risk factor for a poor outcome after stroke. Family and friends provide important support for many survivors, but stroke support groups can also play a vital role in stroke recovery. They can decrease the isolation of both survivors and family, and introduce new friends to replace those often lost after the stroke.” Download a brochure here.
