is to establish and nuture a community of stroke/brain injury survivors, caregivers, and family members to support each other as we cope with everyday challenges.
MONTHLY MEETINGS consist of an educational presentation followed by a brief social gathering with refreshments.  We then break into two groups, survivors and caregivers.  Within each group, individuals are given the opportunity to share their experiences, whether it be successes, frustrations, or general daily obstacles.  Although the groups have designated facilitators, the discussion topics are always open.
IMMEDIATE SUPPORT is available.  Your life changes the moment you or a loved one are faced wtih a stroke or brain injury.  This can be a frightening time, with many questions about your future, options, and resources.  The Stroke/Brain Injury Support Group has volunteers who have coped with similar life altering situations and are available to others faced with these challenges.
