Stroke Support Group

Sat Jan 13th, 2018 - 10 am to 12 pm
At 55 Melroy Avenue, Lackawanna

Have you or a loved one recently suffered a stroke or are you a long term stroke survivor? Join us for a free stroke support group. Meetings are held each month and include a guest speaker discussing various topics of interest for stroke survivors and their caregivers. This month's topic:

Emily Rowles-Saraceni, AEMT-P, NYS CIC, Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Liaison at Mercy Hospital, will discuss what to expect when you call 9-1-1 for a stroke emergency and the different levels of care available to individuals experiencing stroke symptoms. She will also present information on the Cincinnati Prehospital Stroke Scale, which looks at facial droop, arm drift and speech to help EMS providers determine the probability of a stroke before patients get to the hospital, and teach you how to use the scale at home.
