BRIDGEPORT - The St. Vincent's Stroke Survivors and Caregivers Support Group meets from 5:30 to 7 p.m. on the 3rd Wednesday of each month in Hawley 3A of the Cancer Center at St. Vincent’s Medical Center.

The support group addresses the concerns and needs of stroke survivors and their caregivers, according to a statement.

Speech, occupational, and physical therapists as well as neurologists and social workers are also available to provide information and links to services in the community, the statement said.
The group is sponsored by St. Vincent’s Department of Social Work and the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.
There is no charge for attendance at the group. Parking is free with validated ticket.
