The MultiCare Stroke Survivor Network
(In Collaboration with the MultiCare Stroke Program and Good Samaritan Rehabilitation)
BACKGROUND: According to the American Heart Association, Social isolation and loneliness are associated with about a 30% increased risk of heart attack or stroke, or death from either. We are reinvigorating the stroke resources in our community to assist stroke survivors and their family members.
The past two years have been exceedingly challenging in keeping a stroke support group fully engaged and well attended. With this in mind, we want to reinvigorate the stroke resources in our community to assist our stroke survivors and their family.
THE MISSION: Empowering stroke survivors, their families, and caregivers with resources to help them recover, regain, and REBUILD their lives.
-To provide a safe and therapeutic environment for stroke survivors, their families and caregivers to share their experiences and challenges in their road to stroke recovery.
-To establish activities that promote healing.
-To invigorate a stroke support group that can assist with the stroke survivors in our community
