Orillia Stroke Survivors and Caregiver Support Group

Description (Service) This Stroke support groups allow stroke survivors to help themselves and other survivors create meaningful lives after stroke. Coming together in an atmosphere of caring and cooperation, survivors, their family caregivers and friends can forge a new sense of community. New goals and friendships are started, renewing hope and encouraging independence. 
March of Dimes is the umbrella corporation lending their status and speakers to the group. 
Next Steps Walking Program is a walking group for stroke survivors and caregivers to keep active, maintain mobility and socialize with others in the community. Everyone is welcome to join. Urban Poling Activator Poles are available to use at this weekly program free of charge.
