When a stroke survivor is in hospital the family are given a lot of information. However when a certain level of recovery is achieved it’s time to go home.
It is very easy to feel abandoned by the professionals and sometimes by friends who do not know how to help. A stroke affects the whole family and the carer needs support as well.
This is where a stroke group comes in. It’s a chance to meet people who have had similar problems and now the experience to advise and help each other.
You would be welcome at Ashby Stroke Group which does not have medical input, but is based on friendship and information for the stroke survivor and carer.
At the discretion of the Organiser, membership is open to people who have suffered a stroke, their family and carers, and all people interested in furthering the Groups objectives.
We welcome new members and transport is available for pick-up within a reasonable area, but if you can make your own way either with a relative or by taxi, it is a big help and is appreciated.
We meet on alternate Tuesdays at
Brown Court, Atkinson Road, Ashby, LE65 2LZ.
Our aim is to
(a) Help improve the quality of life of people who have suffered stroke.
(b) To provide social, recreational and therapeutic activities.
(c) To raise funds to be used for financing these activities and to meet other requirements.
(d) To promote and maintain close relationships with all persons, including relatives of members and organisations interested in stroke patients and their welfare.
