Stroke/Neurological Support Group

Quote from Helen Keller: “Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.”

So, with optimism and faith that all can be better in our lives while caring for our neurologically impaired loved ones, we ask you to join our group each month, on the second Saturday of the month, from 10 a.m. to noon.

Meetings are in the SaddleBrooke One Arts and Crafts Room 4, and the next meeting is on Saturday, Dec. 11.

We encourage caregivers to be physically and emotionally well by doing what will not only help them maintain their health, but will so much improve their attitudes toward their loved ones. So please:

1. Breathe

2. Drink water, lots

3. Nourish your body with healthy choices

4. Sleep. Try to get five to six hours of shuteye. Know this can sometimes be very difficult.

5. Move your body. Do some exercise each day. While preparing a meal, jump and stretch, as an example.

6. It is equally important to take a break. It’s important to get time away from your loved one. Ask someone to stay for an hour or two. Join Senior Village by calling 520-314-1042.
