WHAT & WHY
When we aren’t in the pool getting our exercise and socializing, participants enjoy a lunch (which they provide) with the group, followed by card games, arts and crafts and other leisure activities. Emphasis is placed on fostering a warm, caring and co-operative environment that is fun and rewarding for all, volunteers as well.
“We are amazed at what the Strokers program has done for our
son. He had a stroke October,2015 and was in hospital until September,2016. He joined the
Strokers program the following month. At that time, he was using his wheelchair and walking a
short distance with his cane. Now, he walks in the water on his own and swims in the deep end.
Thanks to the fabulous group of volunteers, the encouragement from other stroke survivors and the support you provide, this miracle has happened.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your support.
