Our group offers a safe and supportive environment allowing participants the comfort and ability to share social and emotional support to those sharing similar experiences. To assist in providing wellness to the stroke community, we invite guest speakers to provide an educational presentation on various topics of interest for members and caregivers. Each session includes an open group discussion led by Elaine McDonald, Clinical Social Worker.


All in-person meetings have been temporarily suspended. Meetings will be conducted virtually via Zoom until further notice.
