New stroke support group meets monthly at Abrazo Central Campus

Posted

Abrazo Central Campus is launching a monthly stroke support group, with meetings on the second Thursday of each month. The group meets from 2 -4 p.m. in the hospital’s Acute Rehab Unit classroom.

Abrazo Central Campus, 2000 W. Bethany Home Road, is a certified Comprehensive Stroke Center, and the support group offers a welcoming place for stroke survivors and their families to talk about their experiences.

“Access to a caring support network is important in the recovery process for those affected by stroke. We are very happy to provide the setting for monthly in-person support group meetings,” said Lisa Ziomek RN, Stroke Program Coordinator at Abrazo Central Campus.

Abrazo Central Campus has teamed up with the Joe Niekro Foundation to launch its support group for patients and family members affected by ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke, brain aneurysm, or AVM. The group offers a place to come together and share stories, offer helpful resources and assist with ongoing support for survivors and their families.

Each stroke survivor faces a unique set of physical and emotional challenges. And each cope their own way. Support groups can help survivors and caregivers have meaningful lives after stroke, according to the American Stroke Association.
