Stroke Support Groups
Support groups can help you and your family connect with others who are experiencing similar lifestyle changes after stroke.
BIDMC Stroke Support Group
BIDMC's stroke support group offers an opportunity for patients, their families and caregivers to learn from the BIDMC medical team and each other about living with the effects of a stroke. Each meeting includes presentations from the Boston medical community about emerging stroke research and positive changes patients can make to enhance post-stroke recovery.
Group members also have the opportunity at each meeting to share and learn from each other about their experiences with stroke and the path they are taking on their road to recovery.
Third Tuesday of each month, 11:30 a.m. - 1 p.m.

Brain Fit Club
What is good for our bodies — a healthy diet, exercise, sleep, and stress reduction — is also good for our brains. With the right kind of mental activity, social engagement, and brain-specific exercises, injured brains heal faster and aging brains stay healthy.
The goal of BIDMC's Brain Fit Club (BFC) is to translate new discoveries in brain sciences into personalized therapies for sustaining brain health. The club provides resources for patients and healthy individuals alike.
- The National Stroke Association can help you find a stroke support group in your area, or even start a support group.
The Stroke Network, an online community, is a non-profit organization that provides online support for people who have had a stroke and their caregivers.
