Different Strokes - Sheffield

Description

A registered charity that offers support, information and advice to younger stroke survivors (I.e. those of working age) and their families. Offers a "serious approach to stroke rehabilitation - run by survivors".

Runs sessions which involve exercise and fitness to improve balance and suppleness with qualified neuro-physiotherapists as well as tailored one to one programmes. Professional updates are provided by psychologist, occupational therapists, mental health professionals and health researchers - as requested by group members. Offers the chance to share, talk and listen on a range of topics you would like to talk about such as relationships, memory, concentration, in safe and supportive environment. Also plans socials, meals out, trips to concerts, countryside and comedy nights.

Different strokes can offer free access to resources, information and signpost to other stroke services across the city. Donations are welcome towards the shared costs of the physiotherapy.

Sessions are held at 18 Upperthorpe, S6 (Saturday).
