    Getting Support and Tips

    Many times the most valuable source of information is from other people who have had to "walk in your shoes." They have had to live with Stroke and may have spent a good deal of time finding resources and strategies to solve a problem. Your physician may not have access to or know about a special community program or a pharmacy that has better services at a lower price.

    Local Stroke Support Groups can be invaluable in answering the questions that we cannot answer. The American Heart Association has a user friendly support group finder. I tried it for our area and it came up with 5 support groups. Here is the link. http://www.strokeassociation.org/STROKEORG/strokegroup/public/zipFinder.jsp Give it a try and more importantly give the support group a try.
