Our group has a strong independent bent, autonomous rather than as “a chapter of” another organization.

The emphasis on educational awareness of opportunities as the “Get Better Together” project.

The Group

The Portage Stroke Survivors Support Group has a long standing history. The group first had the help of a priest from Neepawa as motivator and facilitator, and for the last five years that role has been filled by David Dowd from the Stroke Recovery Association of Manitoba. The present membership stands at twelve, three of which are caregivers.

Meetings are held on the third Tuesday of the month except in July and August. There is a small attendance fee and visitors are welcome.

The business affairs of the group are ably guided by the Executive who meet over coffee between meetings to plan for the next regular meeting, and deal with concerns raised at the last general meeting.
