Speakeasy

A speaking group for anyone who has trouble speaking their mind, telling a joke or even (GASP!) speaking in public; in other words, everyone. Bring a joke if you have one handy. This is a perfect, friendly environment for anyone to practice a speech before they present it. Nothing beats speaking for making better communicators. 
*NEW* Caregiver Peer Support Group
In the new year, The Stroke Recovery Association of Manitoba (SAM) will be introducing a new peer support group for caregivers of stroke survivors.  The impact of having a stroke can be significant.  A stroke survivor may have physical difficulties, problems with speech or swallowing, confusion and poor memory, reduced control over emotions and behavioral issues, along with other effects.  Loved ones of stroke survivors also experience  dramatic changes to their lives.  Learning about strokes and rehabilitation options, accessing helpful resources, and importantly, feeling emotionally supported are all needs that caregivers have, whether a spouse, child, parent, sibling, family member or friend.  
 
If you are the caregiver of a loved one who has suffered a stroke, either recently or in the past, please call SAM at 204-942-2880 for further information about our Stroke Caregiver Group.  The group will meet monthly at its office at Unit B – 247 Provencher Blvd in Winnipeg.  The first meeting will be held on January 16, 2019, from 12:30 to 2:30.  Join us to share your stories, learn about stroke recovery, and receive support from others who have experienced significant life changes after their loved one has suffered a stroke.
