Goals

  • To provide information and emotional support to stroke survivors and their families
  • To increase public awareness of stroke and its consequences
  • To promote the return to society of stroke survivors by providing a friendly environment for socialization. Peer support of both survivors and caregivers is the cornerstone of Stroke Recovery Canada - Burlington chapter philsophy
  • To acquaint and educate the community regarding stroke and its impact on the family

 

Stroke is the third largest cause of death in Canada, and the leading cause of adult disability. The SRAO, Burlington Chapter is necessary because stroke is, by its very nature, socially isolating. After a stroke, survivors are often cut off from the world of work, recreation and fellowship by permanent physical and mental disabilities. The SRA provides a community of support and friendship, helping to rebuild lives changed forever.

Services

  • Monthly Membership Meetings are held every 4th Wednesday of the month at the Lions Club building on Pearl Street at 7:00 PM from September through June. A speaker, entertainment, or group discussion is followed by coffee, tea and snack and social time.
  • Don't be shy! Come out to a meeting and spend time getting to know folks like yourself, enjoying socialization, participation and education
  • Various outings: bus trips to destinations and events of interest and participation in events like our annual Summer Picnic.
  • Members can liaise with other chapters of the SRAO, locally, regionally or provincially for extended support and fellowship.
