Stroke Support Group
Stroke is a medical emergency that happens when there is a drop in blood flow to parts of the brain. Sometimes, people who have a stroke experience temporary or permanent paralysis of different parts of the body, impaired speech and vision or memory loss.
The rehabilitation process might mean you or a loved one needs a dedicated, interdisciplinary team. Jefferson's Acute Rehabilitation Unit is committed to the satisfaction of our patients.
Join us for a Stroke Support Group - A forum to meet, share information, and offer encouragement in caring for a loved one or surviving a brain injury or a stroke. Monthly meetings address issues such as diagnosis, symptom management, life changes, caregiver stress, and other important subjects.
This group is led by experts from The Vickie and Jack Farber Institute for Neurosciences - Jefferson Health. The group provides emotional and practical support. Patients, families, and friends are all invited to participate.
