While I’m on the topic of being as educated as possible about chronic disease, I want to mention yet another association that offers education and support, the Rocky Mountain Stroke Association, at http://www.strokecolorado.org When we think of stroke many of us think of physical disability, however often a stroke involves an injury to the brain. The local association in addition to education offers many programs: physical therapy, pool therapy, caregiver support, and other support groups specific to the needs of stroke victims for example,“aphasia” group for those with speech difficulties due to stroke. Brain injuries can be very complex and affect individuals in different ways. Education can help individuals and families copy with the complexities of daily living after stroke.

Return from Rocky Mountain Stroke Association is a very helpful association to the Caring for my Parents Home Page
