Portage La Prairie

Herman Prior Seniors Centre 40 Royal Rd. N. Portage la Prairie, MB, R1N 1V1

The Portage Stroke Survivors Support Group has a long standing history. 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.
