Program for Brain Injuries in Oliver
The South Okanagan Similkameen Brain Injury Society is offering a seven week stroke recovery program for stroke survivors of any age.
Participants will learn how to cope with transitions that can occur after having a stroke including those involving emotions, communication, memory, sleep patterns and general lifestyle changes. The program provides information, support and an opportunity for stroke survivors to connect and share experiences with others facing the same challenges.
It is offered free of charge to anyone who has had a stroke and still lives in their own home.
Sessions are offered Friday mornings at the Kiwanis Manor in Oliver for 90 minutes each week for seven consecutive weeks. The next series begins Friday, May 16. We encourage people to contact Brian at 250-490-0613 ext. 300 to pre-register.
