Stroke Support Group

The group helps people affected by stroke work through the emotional challenges and recover their confidence and personality with the support of friends and loved ones. A separate family group meets during part of the stroke support session. Members of the hospital’s stroke team facilitate the group and offer clinical expertise and patient education.
