A MESSAGE FROM THE PROGRAM COORDINATOR

The Board of Directors of the Hamilton-Wentworth Stroke Recovery Association and its members would like to thank all the sponsors who helped with our Stroke Awareness Program.

Through your efforts in helping us many professionals as well as the General Public will become more aware of the Hamilton-Wentworth Stroke Recovery Association and the programs we offer to the stroke survivors and their families.

As you are aware, a stroke in the family can be devastating, not only for the stroke victim, but in many cases, more so for the family. The stroke victim is usually in the hospital and is being cared for by a team of professionals, but what about the family? In most cases answers do not come quickly and questions are numerous.

Our effort in the early stages of a stroke is to try to inform the family through dissemination of information and meetings to cope with and understand some of the difficulties confronting them.

As the stroke victims begin their road to recovery through their therapy, they begin to accept their stroke and work toward as much recovery as humanly possible, they become stroke survivors. It is at this point that we encourage them to come to our meetings, to talk and socialize with our members and try to bring them back into the mainstream of our community.

Your very worthwhile effort in helping us produce this publication will undoubtedly enhance the public awareness of the Hamilton-Wentworth Stroke Recovery Association and in doing so, may elevate some of the frustration that both stroke victims and their families experience in a time of crisis.

The future will produce more strokes unfortunately. Your help in making our awareness program such a success will, I am certain, make it a little less painful for stroke survivors and their families who can turn to the Hamilton-Wentworth Stroke Recovery Association in their time of need.

As Program Coordinator of the Hamilton-Wentworth Stroke Recovery Association, I thank you for your most generous support.

Sincerely yours,
Patricia Kopita,
Program Coordinator
