Hospital offering stroke survivor and caregiver support group

JASPER — Memorial Hospital and Health Care Center, in conjunction with University of Louisville Health, is offering a new, free support group where stroke survivors and their family/caregivers can talk openly with others who share similar experiences.

Stroke care doesn’t end when you leave the hospital. Many stroke survivors and their caregivers experience a range of emotions as they adjust back to normal daily activities.

The first support group will be held on Tuesday, September 22, from 1 – 3 p.m. in the Medical Arts Building Conference Center located at 721 W. 13th Street, Jasper. The support group will be held monthly. Pre-registration is not required to attend.

For more information about the Stroke Survivor and Caregiver Support Group, please call Mary Jo Eaton Calhoun, BSN, RN, Telemedicine Services, at 812-996-6364 or Brandie Beck, RN, Neuroscience Nurse Coordinator, at 812-996-5912. You can also e-mail questions or comments to
