New Support Group for Stroke Survivors

 The Stroke Recovery Association of Manitoba (SRAM) exists to remind stroke survivors that they are not alone, that there is life after a stroke and a place for rehabilitation, support, and friendship with others who understand.

Twenty years ago, in her 40s and with a young family, Anne Manitowich discovered the value and importance of SRAM, up close and personal, when she suffered first one stroke, and then another two years later.

The devastating experience affected her vision, focus, reaction time, balance and short-term memory. As a result, Manitowich can no longer drive or work. But she’s focused on what she can do. Having since become a member of the Stroke Recovery Association of Manitoba based in St. Boniface, Manitowich is now actively involved in being there for other stroke survivors by volunteering her time facilitating peer support groups.

On Sept. 19 from 1 to 3 pm at 247 Provencher Blvd., a new peer support group will begin for people recovering from a stroke. 

The support group will run the third Tuesday of every month. Knowing there are services and resources for stroke recovery can be the difference between isolation and thriving. Winnipeg Free Press New Peer Stroke Recovery Group
