After a stroke, it is vital that patients and their families get the information and support they need. Our dedicated, trained, stroke nursing staff provides support and serves as an invaluable resource for patients and family members regarding rehabilitation and community resources.
The WVU Stroke Center offers a stroke support group that provides education to the stroke survivor and care giver about topics relating to stroke. To learn more about the WVU Stroke Center Stroke Support meetings, please call 304-293-1795.
The program has peer-to-peer counseling and a peer visiting training program for stroke survivors, their family members, friends and others. The program takes participants through a series of classes designed to address the physical, mental, and emotional changes stroke survivors may face after their stroke.
After completing the program, peer visitors are equipped with the skills and knowledge they need to help others move forward after their stroke. The program allows people with a common bond to share their experiences, encourage progress, and lend support throughout the recovery process.
