WHO WE ARE
A support group for stroke survivors of all ages and their caregivers, family members and friends. Survivors of Stroke Niagara (SOS Niagara) was established by a small group of people who felt there was a need for support after they or their loved one suffered a stroke. SOS Niagara has now grown into a thriving support group that helps people connect with peers, exchange information and resources, explore the personal impact of stroke and build supportive relationships.
WHAT WE DO
Monthly meetings are usually two hours long. For the first hour, group news information is shared. Guest speakers are often invited to present a variety of topics and to make us aware of available resources. During the second hour of the meeting, members separate into two groups: stroke survivors and caregivers. Each group gathers in different rooms to talk and give each other support. These discussions are informal and confidential.
