To help area stroke patients live their highest quality of life, Catholic Health is offering quarterly Stroke Support Group meetings at Kenmore Mercy Hospital.

“Life After Stroke” will be the topic of the next meeting, which is scheduled from 10 a.m. to noon Thursday, March 2, in the Medical Rehabilitation Dining Room, on the second floor, 2950 Elmwood Ave., Kenmore.

Dr. Nadeem Hussain, medical director of Kenmore Mercy Hospital’s Medical Rehabilitation Unit, will discuss how stroke impacts survivors and their families. Topics include depression, caregiver burnout and intimacy issues. Blood pressure screenings also will be available.

Attendance is free and open to recently diagnosed stroke patients, long-term stroke survivors, family members and loved ones.

Each meeting includes a guest speaker discussing topics of interest to stroke survivors and their caregivers, including information on available community resources.

According to a prepared statement, Catholic Health Stroke Support Group offers a relaxed and supportive environment for individuals and families to learn more about available community resources for stroke patients.

Free parking is available, and light refreshments will be served. For more information or to register for a meeting, call Catholic Health’s HealthConnection at 447-6205 or visit www.chsbuffalo.org/events.
