New Milton Stroke Club

A Charity set up 1992 to provide a purely social meeting place for stroke sufferers who often leave hospital with no after-care/backup and no support to carers who frequently don't know what they have to deal with.  Referrals by hospitals, surgeries and recommendation.

Aims and objectives are to help patients in their recovery, enable them to share their experiences and problems with understanding/sympathetic fellow sufferers, and to encourage recovery as far as possible.  Support and practical advice also given to carers who often find it difficult to cope.

Open to all in the parish district.  Although not always possible, transport can be arranged if necessary. 

Managed by a small committee and team of about 8 voluntary helpers, one with first aid experience who is always on call at the meetings.

Anyone interested should first call Anna Green, the Group Coordinator, on 01425 614193.
