(Jan. 28, 2014) – The Inova Hospital free Stroke Survivors and Caregivers Support Group will hold a meeting on Wednesday, Feb. 12 that focuses on exercise.
The purpose of the support group is to provide a supportive and encouraging environment as a part of the stroke recovery process for those who are affected by stroke and their caregivers. The group meets the second Wednesday of each month from 11 a.m. to noon at Inova Loudoun Hospital, 44045 Riverside Parkway, Leesburg in the second floor Patient Education Room.
Stroke is a “brain attack” cutting off vital oxygen and blood to parts of the brain that control everything we do. Every year, stroke affects nearly 800,000 people in the US. The survivors of stroke forever experience changes that can affect speaking, walking, memory, and thinking. The recovery process after a stroke is life long. Socializing in a supportive and encouraging environment is an important part of stroke recovery. Support groups allow stroke survivors and caregivers to interact with others who understand the life changes that occur after stroke.
Participation is free and registration isn’t required. For further information, please contact Robyn Thomson at 703-858-6667 or email@example.com.
