Stroke Club Meeting May 13, 2010

May 13, 2010

This day was a planned trip to the Central Florida Stroke Club that meets regularly on the 2nd and 4th Thursday of each month.   My mother Lety would attend and travel with her caregiver to these functions which are held within a Methodist church building.   The lower level or basement housed a conveniently large size room equipped with a kitchen facility that allows for preparation of light appetizers, snacks and beverages.  It includes an upright piano for group singing  which they did not do today as the monthly board meeting was in session.  As members gathered around circular tables arranged  in the center of the room a speaker prepared here presentation and demonstration of her company’s occupational rehabilitation device which Lety attempted.  image

 This was my first attendance to such a gathering.   Most members were stroke survivors and others included their spouses.  The kindness and supportive nature of these people is most striking as they relate the degree and progress of their own rehabilitation.  It seems while some were further along than others the progression of recovery and hope keeps everyone coming back and moving forward.
