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 Burlington philosophy
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. After Stroke 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. Stroke Recovery Burlington provides a community of support and friendship, helping to rebuild lives changed forever.
