The group’s next meeting is Wednesday, June 15, from 4:30-6 p.m. in the Tidelands Health Neurological Rehabilitation Center at Waccamaw Medical Park East, 4033 U.S. 17 Bypass, Suite 102, in Murrells Inlet.

“Our experts, including neurological physical therapists and occupational therapists, are available during the support group meetings to offer guidance and answer questions from stroke survivors,” said Jessica Ault, stroke program coordinator at Tidelands Health. “The meetings provide a comfortable environment for participants to ask questions and hear stories from others going through similar challenges following a stroke.”

Participants also have the opportunity to ask questions of Tidelands Health experts, get help finding community support services and learn ways to help prevent another stroke and practice healthy habits.

The group meets the third Wednesday of every month at the same time and place. Anyone in the community can attend the free meetings. No advance registration is required.

The new support group is part of a growing number of services and new level of care being offered through the health system’s expanding neurosciences program.
