New support for stroke sufferers
PEOPLE recovering from a stroke in Coffs Harbour will have more support from “people who have been there” with a new Stroke Recovery Club.
The club, which will take over from the current support group run by Red Cross Coffs Harbour, is open to all people affected by stroke.
“The new recovery club will be focusing more on entertainment and activities for members,” Red Cross Coffs Harbour president Anne Moon said.
“We find it’s an invaluable point for people to come to after their initial rehabilitation and continue on.
“It’s about giving people a chance to get out and meet new people who have been there and done that, supporting each other and being there for guidance – whether it’s just to have a chat and a cup of tea or for exercise in the rehabilitation pool.”
Representatives from the Stroke Recovery Clubs in Grafton and Sydney will be on hand to give people advice at the open forum, which will take place at C.ex Coffs on May 26 from 1pm to 4pm.
