In Hospital Stroke Survivor Visitation Program at Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital
To provide hope and encouragement to stroke survivors and their families via a peer support program.
The patient/family will contact the Joseph Brant Memorial Hospital (JBMH) Stroke Care Coordinator (Amy deHueck) at 905-632-3737 x5762 to request a peer visit.
The Stroke Care Coordinator will contact one of the trained peer support volunteers to provide the patient’s name, location and contact number. This will be done on a rotational basis, to ensure an equal distribution of visits for the volunteers, unless the patient specifically wishes a visit from a male or female volunteer. If Amy is away from the hospital, the patient will be advised to contact Nicole Urek, Administrative Assistant for Allied Health, at x1315 who will contact the volunteer.
All volunteers will be processed by the JBMH Volunteer Services Department and will attend the training program offered by Stroke Recovery Canada/March of Dimes.
The Stroke Care Coordinator will complete additional orientation for the hospital visits with respect to infection control, confidentiality, etc.
The Stroke Care Coordinator will accompany the volunteers during the initial orientation period and provide feedback/assistance as required.
During the initial commencement period, the Stroke Care Coordinator will follow-up with the patient for an evaluation of the visit and provide feedback to the volunteer.
Chapter Meetings are held every 4th Wednesday at 7:00 pm in the Burlington Lions Club
