SUPPORT GROUP FOR
& THEIR CARERS
Walton Stroke Group meets most Mondays from 10am to 1:30pm at the centre in Manor Road. It is affiliated to the Stroke Association.
The aim is to give stroke recoverers and their carers somewhere to go each week where they can enjoy the company of others in the same situation as themselves. There are now about thirty members and a number of voluntary helpers. Spouses/partners are welcome to stay if they wish, but may benefit from a free morning. Some transport is available.
The morning begins with chair exercises followed by a quiz, bingo or entertainment. Neuro-physiotherapy is available for members who need it. Lunch is served at 12:15pm.
The group also organises five or six half-day outings with a full-day trip in the summer. In October they have an annual dinner and there is a Christmas Lunch. In 2017 seventeen members went to Eastbourne for a week’s annual holiday by the sea.
