Stroke Support Group to meet March 18

Hendricks County Senior Services hosts a monthly Stroke Support Group on the third Tuesday of the month at the Hendricks County Senior Center. The next meeting is 10:30 a.m. March 18.

The group is open to anyone who has had a stroke or is caring for someone that has had a stroke. The support group is free of charge and meetings are confidential.

“The group’s mission is to give survivors and caregivers an opportunity to share their experiences and gain strength and knowledge from others who have been through a similar event,” In-Home Services Coordinator at Hendricks County Senior Services Deanne Sanders-Below said in a press release.

New participants are always welcome and membership in the senior center is not required.

Transportation is available through Hendricks County Senior Services by calling 745-4303.

Those who would like to stay for lunch are asked to call 24 hours in advance. Lunch is a suggested $2 donation for people ages 60 and older.

The warning signs of a stroke include sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg, especially on one side of the body; sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding; sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes; sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination; and sudden severe headache with no known cause.
