Stroke Support Group

Wednesday, July 13, 2022 at 6:00p.m. - 7:30p.m.

The Comprehensive Stroke Center at Rhode Island Hospital offers a stroke support group for stroke survivors and concerned caregivers, open to the public (in-person or via ZOOM), every second Wednesday of the month from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

Stroke survivors have specialized needs and interests as they adapt to post-stroke living. To help facilitate that transition, we offer a support group for stroke survivors and their caregivers to help overcome the challenges of life after stroke. 

Our group offers a safe and supportive environment allowing participants the comfort and ability to share social and emotional support to those sharing similar experiences. To assist in providing wellness to the stroke community, we invite guest speakers to provide an educational presentation on various topics of interest for members and caregivers. 

Take advantage of the educational resources offered; addressing local resources, practical tips to improving quality of life, effective coping strategies, ways to prevent a recurring stroke and much more.


Each session includes an open group discussion led by Elaine McDonald, Clinical Social Worker
