Center News, Seniors stroke group

Seniors Stroke Group, how you touched my heart.

“It’s so much better than the other groups I have gone to, it’s so friendly.”

 

Today I spent some time with the seniors stroke group seeing the stretch and relaxation exercises they perform and spoke with the group personally to get their point of view on the group.

Not a single attendee had a bad word to say about this group, they all praised the center the group and Maggie Palmer on treating them in a respectful friendly and most importantly, equal fashion.

“This group really helps and isn’t the usual tea and biscuits, they help us to recover not just talk about it”

This group helps sufferers of strokes to get back on their feet and back to life as they knew it before, the group attendees are treated so respectfully that at points I would never have thought of them as people with any kind of mobility or cognitive difficulties, the exercises were gentle but thorough and catered to the needs of all in the group, nobody was left out or forced to do anything they felt they were unable to do.

“My daughter attends other groups besides this one and this is the only one that I have been welcomed to join her”

After the exercises the group attendees retired to a lovely laid out dinner table and a full dinner of sausages, jacket potatoes with cheese and baked beans all the tea coffee and refreshments they could want for followed by a home made apple strudel all prepared in the five star hygiene rated kitchen here at the center. (they eat better than I do at home)

Even carers and family members are welcomed to join the meal and the exercises, in my personal opinion I believe this truly helps to give carers and family members insight into the struggle and progress of their clients and family members that they support.

“People think you just get over a stroke but you don’t, it takes practice and patience to get through it.”

I was invited to join them for dinner and discussed the attendees feelings about the group, the center and of the staff, however this was not before I watched with joy in my heart as Maggie Palmer and another group attendee helped a wheelchair bound woman to walk on her own two feet, I am told that she has made great progress and previously could barely walk a step.

Over a wonderful dinner I was told;

“It’s so much better than the other groups I have gone to, it’s so friendly.”

“My daughter attends other groups besides this one and this is the only one that I have been welcomed to join her”

“This group really helps and isn’t the usual tea and biscuits, they help us to recover not just talk about it”

“People think you just get over a stroke but you don’t, it takes practice and patience to get through it.”

ABLL Assistant Manager Pat told me; “It really is a pleasure to do this with them, there aren’t many groups that do what we do and we wish we could do it more often”

If you or anybody close to you has suffered a stroke, I would 110% recommend this wonderful, helpful, welcoming and friendly group to help you transition from sufferer to survivor to recovery.

And remember you are NOT alone.
