Stroke Support Group

A stroke changes not only the patient’s life but the entire family’s life as well. Our free stroke support group offers a place where stroke survivors, their caregivers and loved ones can discuss life issues after stroke and learn from each other how to move forward with new abilities. Our group is coordinated by the Stroke Program Coordinator, a lead Outpatient Physical therapist and one of our Stroke Unit nurses.

Our stroke support group meets the second Tuesday of every month in the FMH Crestwood from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Our group provides:

  • A comfortable place to share your challenges, triumphs, and personal experiences
  • Educational lectures from guest speakers, including neurologists, registered dietitians, physical and occupational therapists, community liaisons, and other members of the Frederick Memorial Hospital staff
  • Social gatherings, holiday parties
  • A forum to share hints and tips for living a quality life after stroke.

New members are always welcome. Our meetings are free, but we ask that you call us at 240-566-4884, to register for our monthly invitation and newsletter.
