Stroke Support Group: You Are Not AloneJune 19, 2019 8:31 pm
The NeuroMedical Center Rehabilitation Hospital is hosting a Stroke Support Group for survivors of stroke and their caregivers. During meetings you will hear from The NeuroMedical Centers physicians, dietitians, therapists, and other community resources about general stroke information, reducing risk factors, physical and emotional changes, and pain following stroke. Meetings are held on the last Thursday of every month from 12-1pm in the 6th floor dining area.
Upcoming Support Group Meetings:
Stroke is the fifth leading cause of death in the United States; however, it remains a leading cause of permanent adult disability. While traditional therapy helps a stroke patient regain mobility and brain function, art therapy has been found to help fight depression and anxiety during stroke recovery. Art therapy can also stimulate the brain’s ability to adjust and form new pathways after stroke and offer a new form of expression for someone who has lost certain abilities.
The NeuroMedical Center Rehabilitation Hospital’s Stroke Support Group aims to provide high-quality information, practical advice and emotional support following a stroke. For more information email [email protected]
