Stroke Support Group
The Stroke Support Group is a collaborative effort between CP Rochester and Rochester Rehabilitation. It offers stroke survivors and caregivers an opportunity to share their experiences and offer encouragement, support, and understanding to others. The group’s mission is to instill hope and help motivate stroke survivors for or in their recovery. Meetings may include guest speakers on topics such as recovery strategies, overcoming depression, nutrition, exercise, yoga and acupuncture as related to stroke, driving after stroke, insurance, and local stroke initiatives. A physician’s referral is not needed. Meetings are free and open to stroke survivors, caregivers, and anyone who is interested in attending.
