Stroke Club

The Stroke Club is a group of stroke survivors and their families and friends who meet regularly to socialize and learn to deal with problems related to stroke. By emphasizing what can be done rather than what can't be done, the Club may give new hope and insight to those involved.

The Stroke Club is open to stroke survivors, family members, friends and other interested people.
