Stroke Support

The St. Francis Health Stroke Support Group provides a welcoming environment for stroke survivors, their families and caregivers to meet weekly and support each other with a caring spirit and nurturing attitude that promotes openness, learning, health and wellness. Together we help to restore the joy of living.

Stroke Support Group activities include:

Education - Information will be provided through presentations, handouts and discussion on topics pertinent to stroke as well as overall health and wellness.

Exercise - Group exercise and recreational group activities.

Socialization - Meet people who have survived a stroke and can share their experiences with you. Friends, family and caregivers also have an opportunity to share and get to know one another. 

Joining the St. Francis Health Stroke Support Group is easy! Call Heidi Ross, CTRS at 785.270.7454 today to get started.
