Jane Henderson Hours: 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.
Charles Louis Hours: 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!
