Hannibal Regional Offering Stroke Support Group


Every 40 seconds someone in the United States suffers from a stroke, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Life after a stroke often brings new challenges for stroke survivors, their families, and caregivers. Recognizing the need for stroke support, Hannibal Regional is pleased to offer a free Stroke Support Group.   

Anyone that has been affected by a stroke is welcome, including survivors, their loved ones, and caregivers. The goal is to provide education and support to assist stroke survivors in adjusting to life after a stroke. Participants may share their experiences and gain valuable insight from a team of healthcare professionals. Topics that will be discussed include: 

  • How strokes can affect relationships
  • Successful adjustments for lifestyle changes after a stroke
  • Survivor and caregiver struggles
  • Goals for survivors and caregivers
  • Medical questions and answers
  • Exercise and more

The Stroke Support Group will meet every fourth Wednesday of each month. Meetings will be held from 2:30 pm to 3:30 pm and will take place in the Sun Room, located just inside Hannibal Regional Hospital. For more information, please call 573-629-3444.
