Stroke Support Group
The Rehabilitation Unit at offers a stroke support group, "Living after Stroke." The stroke support group is run primarily by two stroke survivors who completed their rehabilitation here at UI Health. The group provides peer-to-peer support and is offered to all patients and family members in the hospital and on the acute rehabilitation floor during their stay and upon their return to the community.
The "Living after Stroke" group meets the first and third Tuesday of each month on the same floor as the acute rehabilitation unit (5 East of the Hospital) from 4–5 pm.
Meetings have focused on spirituality, recovery, coping, nutrition, physical activities, stroke education, community involvement, among other topics identified by group members.
