Advocate BroMenn Medical Center and Stroke

Advocate BroMenn Medical Center specializes in stroke care.  Each year, 795,000 people have a new or repeat stroke. Stroke is a medical emergency, so it's important to know both how to reduce your risk and how to react should you or someone you know experience stroke symptoms.

The American Heart Association/American Stroke Association has developed a great deal of information to help educate people about stroke. Below are links to some of their printable information sheets.  More information is available at their web site.

Stroke/Brain Injury Support Group

Advocate BroMenn also supports the Stroke/Brain Injury Support Group of the Bloomington/Normal Area. Survivors of a stroke or brain injury need not cope alone with their recovery, but can discuss successes and setbacks in an open, supportive setting. Meeting once a month, the group seeks to establish and nurture a community of stroke and brain injury survivors, caregivers, and family members. Together, they support each other as survivors, handling everyday challenges. Meetings consist of informational presentations by local healthcare providers on a variety of options and resources available to survivors. Coupled with group discussions on individual experiences and obstacles, topics are open for those who wish to share their stories with others. Immediate support for survivors and caregivers from experienced volunteers is also available during these trying times. Meetings are held every third Tuesday of each month from 5:30 p.m. - 7:00 p.m. at the Central Illinois Neuroscience Foundation, 1015 S. Mercer Avenue, Bloomington. For more information, contact Jackie Smith at 217.935.5476 or Chris Donnan at 217.935.8789.
