Strokes are traumatic events which affect both the survivor and their loved ones. Survivors must cope with the physical and psychological effects of a stroke, in addition to the emotional fallout from the event and its longer lasting effects, such as the potential for depression.2 Sharing encouragement and support with those who are experiencing similar circumstances can be therapeutic. The Kent County Stroke Support Group is a wonderful opportunity to do just that. In addition to participant interaction, guest speakers will present on a variety of topics relevant to improving mental and physical performance. Call 302-744-6638 for meeting times and guest speaker schedules.3
