For Family Caregivers

Caregivers deserve our appreciation. The stroke survivor’s family is often the most important source of long-term support during recovery and rehabilitation. But who takes care of the caregiver?

Stroke Support Groups

Stroke support groups can help you get beyond your limitations. Social interaction and simply connecting with others help ease the depression and isolation so common after stroke.
