Stroke Awareness

Would you know what signs to look for if you thought someone may be having a stroke?

Have you suffered a stroke yourself, or care for someone who has?

Would you like to learn more about living a healthy lifestyle and how you can help prevent yourself from having a stroke?

What if you are a Health Care Professional; do you know much about strokes? Would you like to increase your knowledge and skills?

This really informative and interactive workshop offers you the opportunity to understand what a stroke is and what you can do to prevent the risk of having a stroke, along with other information about diet, blood pressure and local support groups.

The group is facilitated by a stroke support coordinator from the Stroke Association who has experience in supporting people following a stroke.

At Pontefract Library
