A stroke can be a life-changing experience for the whole family. We invite stroke survivors, family members and caregivers to join a stroke support group. 在这些会议上, you can share experiences, learn important information, and get support and encouragement from others who understand you.

Support groups are typically held at the Aging Resource Center, 在中央公园路46号, Lebanon New Hampshire on the second floor. While our sessions are currently virtual, check back for more information about when we will resume in-person.

To learn more about the stroke support group, contact the Aging Resource Center at 603-653-3460 or agingcenter@hitchcock.org.
