Like you, the Stroke
Help Line volunteers have experienced stroke in their lives.
Wednesdays and Thursdays, 1-4 p.m. MT
I am a caregiver
as well as having worked in the medical field for many years, mostly with
Stroke Survivors and their families. I understand that sometimes people just
need to be listened to! I hope my experience will be helpful to those who call
the National Stroke Association HelpLine.
Mondays and Fridays, 8:30 a.m.-1 p.m. MT
I understand the un-understandable (I don't think that is a word!). When the
survivor or caregiver finds out that I am a stroke survivor, the conversation changes,
because even though I don't know them, I know them. I love that!
