Recovering from a stroke can be a challenging time for stroke survivors as they relearn how to care for themselves, overcome mobility issues or change how they communicate.
Caregivers can help by encouraging their loved one to be as independent as possible, helping them make their own decisions and promoting participation in leisure activities. To help both stroke survivors and their caregivers navigate these new challenges,
Tenet Health Central Coast offers a monthly Stroke Support Group at Sierra Vista Regional Medical Center and Twin Cities Community Hospital. The groups are free and open to anyone in the community who may have questions about life after stroke or
who is looking to meet others who may share similar feelings or experiences as either a stroke survivor or caregiver.
