By Christian Meagher on 10/7/2019

Griffin Hospital is starting a new support group this October to help stroke survivors and their caregivers understand the effects and manage their lifestyles.

Starting Oct. 14, the Griffin Health Stroke Support Group will meet on the second Monday of each month from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at The Center for Cancer Care at Griffin Hospital, 350 Seymour Ave., Derby.

The group will provide education to survivors and caregivers to help them understand physiological and psychological effects post stroke, and provide an emotional outlet through group discussions.

Guest speakers will be invited to discuss various topics, including fatigue, stress, exercise and local and national resources.
