Understand the Importance of Medication Adherence and Stroke Prevention

Strokes bring on many lifestyle changes. Most survivors are sent home from the hospital with a multitude of new medications to prevent subsequent strokes. These medications (such as blood thinners) are important.

Survivors face the highest risk of another stroke within the first two days, but they remain vulnerable even up to one year after the first stroke.

BUT did you know that more than 1/2 of stroke survivors stop taking their life-saving medications within months of the stroke without doctor approval. Missed doses quickly lead to increased stroke risk?

November 8, 2023, Wednesday
Online presentation by Angie Read, stroke survivor and author
- 10:00-10:55 AM PT for stroke survivors
- 11:00-11:55 AM PT for family caregivers

You survived a stroke, but now you're dealing with the painful uncertainty, anxiety, and depression left in its wake.

Angie Read shares her personal story of survival, struggle, and strength through the storm after a stroke. You'll learn the ten simple "hacks" Angie used to manage her own mental health

highlights one of our members: Ali Parker.

Ali has suffered three strokes in her life: the first when she was 18 months old, the second at 21 years old, and the third at age 37. She is, today, only 46.

While the medical profession often cautions that most recovery happens in the first 18 months after a stroke, Ali is living proof that improvement can be achieved years after the stroke.

Ali strives to connect with people and find activities that she enjoys. In addition to her walking regimen, Ali takes Tai Chi classes.

Ali enjoys meeting other stroke survivors at both our in-person and Zoom support groups. “I most enjoy that the support groups allow time first for everyone to get to know one another through weekly check-ins. Then a topic of discussion arises out of what’s top of mind. You can talk about what’s eating at you in a forum that encourages discussion and the sharing of ideas.”



Q&A Session for Stroke Related Concerns
Wednesday, October 11, 2023 via Zoom 10:00-11:00 AM

Stroke survivors, Caregivers and the public are welcome to attend. A Zoom invitation will be sent out the day before.
