Advocate Trinity’s Stroke Support Group helps guide participants through their recovery process by offering support, guidance, and education. The group will also assist participants in finding ways to solve problems related to stroke by listening to concerns and frustrations. “Joining a support group can help survivors transition back to a normal lifestyle more easily. We encourage participants, as well as their friends and family, to share stories and make new friends.” said Kathy Ponds, stroke coordinator. The next group meeting will take place on Thursday, January 26, from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM. "This is a program that is benefitting stroke victims," said Shahida Ahmad, Trinity Neurologist.
All of Advocate Trinity Hospital’s support groups are free of charge. To register, please call 1-800-323-8622 (1-800-3-ADVOCATE).
