Hendricks County Senior Services hosts a monthly Stroke Support Group on the third Tuesday of each month at the Hendricks County Senior Center in Danville. The next meeting is 10:30 a.m. April 15.
The group is open to anyone who has had a stroke or is caring for someone who has had a stroke. The support group is free of charge and meetings are confidential.
Angi Ferguson, a physical therapist at Countryside Meadows, will be facilitating the group. She received a bachelor of science degree in exercise science in 2003 and a doctorate of physical therapy from Indiana University in ‘07.
“There is a great passion working with people with disabilities and helping them to improve their ability to function,” Ferguson said in a press release. “Whether the struggle is being able to reach your foot to put a sock on or seeing someone walk for the first time in months, each step brings a level of excitement and joy in seeing someone reach their goals.”
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.
