About Stroke Recovery Clubs

Stroke Recovery Association NSW > Services > About Stroke Recovery Clubs

“Joining the Club is one of the best things I have done for myself.”

Stroke Recovery Clubs are a meeting place for people to share their knowledge and experiences of Stroke. They provide an opportunity for group activities, speech practice, exercises, and outings.  Clubs are an excellent source of companionship for all those affected by Stroke including family and carers.

“I find that the Club builds on my confidence to do other things. Club activities are combined with other routines that I do.”

Make sure you attend a meeting, it’s very rewarding, wonderful support for me and my wife and family. I have been a participant in Stroke Clubs for over 30 years and consider them invaluable.”

Stroke Recovery Clubs are coordinated by volunteers and their activities vary from Club to Club. The list below details the locations of our current Stroke support groups:

“People need time to assess their situations. Stroke Recovery comes into its own after patients have left hospital and settled back into some form of normal life. That’s when they need the support of Stroke Recovery Clubs the most.”

“I was only going to give the Stroke Club one month’s trial and I’m still here. I feel all of them are my family. Give it time and patience.”

“My father died of a massive stroke at age 47, when I was 18. My husband had a stroke at age 50, leaving him partially disabled. There was no help for me or my family – neither financial or more importantly, with coping skills. When I found out what the Stroke Recovery Club was doing, I was so impressed I became a volunteer. My husband died in 1989, at age 69, and I still volunteer at my local Club”
