 Stroke Support Groups

Stroke support groups challenge people to get beyond their limitations. Social interaction and simply feeling connected to others helps ease the depression and isolation so common after stroke.

 Stroke Family Warmline 

The Warmline connects stroke survivors and their families with an ASA team member who can provide support, helpful information or just a listening ear.

Although everyone at the ASA's National Call Center is qualified to answer questions about stroke, the Warmline team members have particularly special experience; either they are stroke survivors themselves or have a family member who is.

Call them at 1-888-4-STROKE (1-888-478-7653)

No support group in your area, or do mobility or time restrictions make it hard to make it to a group? You can attend these groups on your schedule, without leaving the comfort of home.
