Stroke support group

Stroke support group

A stroke can be a life-changing experience for the whole family. We invite stroke survivors, family members and caregivers to join a stroke support group. At these meetings, you can share experiences, learn important information, and get support and encouragement from others who understand you.

Support groups are typically held at the Aging Resource Center, at 46 Centerra Parkway, Lebanon New Hampshire on the second floor. While our sessions are currently virtual, check back for more information about when we will resume in-person.

To learn more about the stroke support group, contact the Aging Resource Center at 603-653-3460 or agingcenter@hitchcock.org.

New patients

Depending on your condition, you may need to meet with more than one physician in the Cerebrovascular Disease and Stroke Program.

Your PCP (primary care provider) can make a referral to the appropriate section by contacting us.
