Last week, in conjunction with National Stroke Week, we hosted support group meetings in Bunbury, Geraldton, Northam and Perth.
Our Bunbury attendees heard from Renee, a Stroke Coordinator based at Busselton Hospital who spoke on stroke prevention risk factors and management. Tammy from Laughter Yoga also joined the group for the session.
In Geraldton, Megan, the Acting Stroke Coordinator from Geraldton Regional Hospital, gave a presentation on ‘understanding stroke.’
Tina, a Stroke Foundation volunteer, also spoke to our Perth group on stroke awareness, and in Northam, our nurses conducted stroke risk assessments.
Aboriginal Brain Injury Coordinators, Rebecca and Renee, who are part of the Healing Right Way study, and based at the Neurological Council of WA, actively shared the F.A.S.T. message and encouraged others to become F.A.S.T. heroes too.
Thank you to our clients, carers and guest speakers for joining our groups, and the neurological community, in support of National Stroke Week.
