Tidelands Health launches free support group for stroke survivors and caregivers

GEORGETOWN COUNTY, SC (WMBF) – People who have had a stroke and their caregivers will have a place to go to share their experiences and struggles.

Tidelands Health has launched a support group to provide a comfortable environment for stroke survivors, family members and caregivers to share their experiences.

“Having a stroke creates many challenges and is often a life-changing experience,” said Erin Brown, associate director of orthopedics and neuroscience and stroke program coordinator at Tidelands Health. “We encourage all stroke survivors, their loved ones, caregivers – anyone affected by a stroke – to attend these sessions to find valuable support and resources. It’s always heartwarming to be there and share stories with others going through the same experience so you know you’re not alone. Those who participate in the support group will also have the opportunity to get answers to questions from Tidelands Health experts and also learn ways to prevent another stroke.

The first support group meeting will take place on December 15 from 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Tidelands Health Neurological Rehabilitation Center at Waccamaw Medical Park East near Bypass 17.

The group will meet on the third Wednesday of each month at the same time and place.

If you want more information about the support group, you can call 843-652-1048.
