Posted April 4, 2011

Therapists and staff at Memorial Hermann Rehabilitation Hospital-Katy and Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital know the difficulties facing family and friends of stroke survivors, as well as the challenges that the survivors face themselves. To support these individuals, the hospitals host a monthly Stroke Support Group where attendees can learn about recovery and gain realistic feedback; get helpful information on topics such as health, hygiene, nutrition and prevention; and socialize with other stroke survivors and caregivers.

The next meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 19. Deeya Daniel, speech language pathologist, will talk about aphasia. Aphasia is a disorder that results from damage to the parts of the brain that contain language. Aphasia causes problems with any or all of the following: speaking, listening, reading, and writing.

The stroke support group meets the third Tuesday of every month from 6-7 p.m. in the first Floor Conference Center at Memorial Hermann Katy Hospital, 23900 Katy Freeway, Katy, TX 77494. All Stroke Support Group meetings are open to stroke survivors, caretakers, and families. Call 713-222-CARE (2273) for more information.
