Stroke Support

If you or someone you care about is recovering from stroke, you may feel alone in trying to understand the immense life changes stroke may cause. The Diamond Stroke Center and Jefferson Health – Abington offer many ways to help.

Jefferson Health Stroke Support Group

Our stroke support group provides a safe space to connect with other stroke survivors and those caring for or living with a person who has experienced a stroke. The group is led by experts from the Vickie and Jack Farber Institute for Neuroscience and provides emotional and practical support. Patients, families and friends are all invited to attend free of charge.

This virtual support group is held the second Tuesday of every month at 2 p.m. Please register online via Zoom or email us to sign up. Submit any questions to stroke@jefferson.edu.
