Stroke and head injury support group to resume

The Henry C. Youngerman Center for Communication Disorders at the State University of New York at Fredonia will resume offering support group meetings for stroke and head injury survivors and family members in February.

The group will meet the first and third Tuesday of the month at 3 p.m. in Thompson Hall Room E148. The first meeting is Tuesday, Feb. 19.

A typical group meeting will include activities to help stroke and head injury survivors use compensatory strategies to improve communication skills, provide educational information and an opportunity to socialize and share experiences. Light refreshments will be provided.

The Youngerman Center recognizes that there are individuals in the community whose insurance benefit for therapy has been exhausted but their hopes for improvement have not. Please contact Julie Williams, coordinator 673-4618 for more information about attending the group.

Additional meetings will be on Tuesday, March 5; Tuesday, March 19; Tuesday, April 2; Tuesday, April 16; and Tuesday, May 7.
