On Wednesday the 1st of March, we launched our new Stroke Support Group in Dungarvan, Co. Waterford in The Park Hotel. Our launch night included an information panel of speakers. The Panel included Dr. John Cooke, Consultant Geriatrician, UHW; Breda Jones, CNS, UHW; Tom Gantly, Senior Occupational Therapist, Dungarvan Community Hospital and Patricia Hall, Irish Heart Foundation. Our panel of speakers gave us excellent and insightful talks on stroke, prevention of stroke and services available to those who have had a stroke. We were very grateful to them for providing us with their time and expertise.
The following week on the 7th March we held our first meeting in Dungarvan. Our meetings are held in the beautiful conservatory room in The Park Hotel. We have spent the last few weeks getting to know one another, having lovely chats over a cup of tea and playing board games and quizzes. After Easter, we will be getting into our exercise programme to help us to get fit and healthy especially now that we are coming into the summer months.
