A stroke changes not only the patient’s life, but the entire family’s life, too. Our free stroke support group offers a place where stroke survivors and their caregivers and loved ones can discuss life issues after stroke and learn from each other how to move forward with new abilities. Our group is coordinated by a licensed medical social worker.
Our stroke support group meets the fourth Tuesday of every month in The Valley Hospital Board Room (first floor, near Kurth Gift Shop and Kurth Cafe) from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Our group provides:
- A comfortable place to share your challenges, triumphs, and personal experiences
- Educational lectures from guest speakers, including neurologists, registered dietitians, physical and occupational therapists, and other members of The Valley Hospital medical staff
- Social gatherings
- Holiday parties
- A forum to share hints and tips for living a quality life after stroke
New members are always welcome. Call us at 201-447-8000, ext. 2263, to register for the support group and to receive our monthly invitation and newsletter.
