Stroke Support Groups

What is a Support Group?
Line General

Support groups are a way to meet other stroke survivors or caregivers who understand what you are going through. They can provide support, help you problem solve, learn about stroke and recovery issues, help you find local resources, or just have fun. Groups can meet monthly, bi-monthly, or weekly and at different times of the day. Sometimes you may need to visit several groups in order to find one that is right for you.
