The Stroke Caregiver Support Group is a caregiver only group established to meet the unique needs and perspectives of those caring for a survivor of a stroke. Our group meets every other month at the same time as the Stroke Support Group to decrease the strain on the survivor and caregiver. Though the presentation topics for both groups are the same, the different presenters will provide modified information to best meet the needs of the attendants. In order to alleviate concerns over care of your survivor, we offer trained medical support to survivors attending the concurrent Stroke Support Group in the neighboring Guild Rooms 1&2. This medical care is intended to assist with communication, toileting needs, and any emergent situation which may arise. Our trained medical staff will not be allowed to distribute food or medications. Registration will allow our staff to best meet your needs.
No cost to attend. Registration available at onlineregistrationcenter.com/caregiver support or by phone at 616.774.7911. On-site registration will be available upon check-in to the Stroke Caregiver Support Group. Tune into Wood TV* or WZZM 13 for cancellations due to weather. Use parking lot 2 and patient entrance. Meetings for 2019 on February 27, April 24, June 26, August 28, and October 23.
