Stroke support

group to meet

Hendricks County Senior Services will host its monthly support group for persons who have had a stroke, their caregivers, and anyone else who is interested.

The group is facilitated by Donna Martin, caregiver to a stroke survivor. The next meeting is 10:30 a.m. June 19 at the Hendricks County Senior Center in Danville.

Warning signs of a stroke are 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; sudden severe headache with no known cause. A stroke is an emergency situation and health experts advise calling 9-1-1 at the first sign.

For more information about strokes, visit the website at www.strokeassociation.org.

To arrange for transportation to the support group meeting or to stay for lunch at noon, call 745-4303. Lunch is offered for a suggested $2 donation for those who are age 60 and older and their spouses.

Hendricks County Senior Services is at 1201 Sycamore Lane, Danville.
