Stroke Support Group
What Is The Stroke Support Group?
A stroke can be a very isolating experience. That’s why Jordan Valley Medical Center has established the Stroke Support Group. This support group is a community resource for stroke survivors, their family members, friends and anyone else affected by stroke.
By meeting regularly, members help one another face and overcome common challenges. The primary objectives of the Jordan Valley Medical Center Stroke Support Group are:
- Educate individuals about stroke recovery and gain realistic feedback
- Encourage individuals to share their personal experiences about stroke
- Inspire everyone involved in the life of a stroke survivor to move forward from the experience and find meaning in life
- Provide an environment where stroke survivors and caregivers can make friends and socialize
If you or a loved one has suffered from a stroke, please join our Support Group today!
