The service includes:
- support in a group setting with trained volunteers
- friendship networks
- information, advice and practical and emotional support
- access to support groups
- help to return to work and assistance with access to local leisure and social activities
- support for family members and carers.
The service is for stroke survivors, including TIAs/mini-strokes, of any age and their families and carers, living in the Portsmouth area, Waterlooville, Denmead and Purbrook.
