Stroke/Neurological Support Group Notice

Being a caregiver can be challenging and stressful, but caregivers also describe their role as very meaningful. Therefore, we are happy to announce that the monthly meetings will start once again, to help all caregivers of the neurologically impaired to come and learn how to grow stronger in this very important role.

Meeting in the SaddleBrooke One Arts and Crafts Room 4 on Oct. 9, and every month on the second Saturday of the month, from 10 a.m. to noon.

Meeting speakers are being selected for their expertise on what we will learn are the most recent treatments, methods, placements available, and resources best for their particular disease.

Until we meet, please remember to do what will help you, the caregiver, to be physically, emotionally well:

1. Breathe

2. Drink water

3. Nourish your body with healthy choices

4. Sleep, get six to eight hours of shut eye

5. Move your body, do some exercise each day

6. It is equally important to take a break. It’s important to get time away from your loved one.
