Local Stroke Group Offers Support to Survivors and Caregivers
A stroke can affect an individual in many ways, from paralysis of one side of the body to impaired vision and difficulty swallowing. Beyond physical challenges, many stroke survivors and caregivers also need support and community to transition back into an active lifestyle and continue to heal emotionally and physically. HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital of Toms River’s stroke support group offers stroke survivors a place to relate to other survivors and caregivers encouragement.
As of October 2016, meetings will be the third Wednesday of each month from 10 – 11:45 a.m. at the hospital located at 14 Hospital Drive in Toms River. Meetings will feature guest speakers discussing topics of interest such as the latest information related to stroke, community resources and new ideas on the road to recovery. Attendees can also participate in planned activities throughout the year.
