Stroke Support

Our Stroke Support is focused on maximising recovery of stroke survivors.

We offer a one day per week club environment in which we provide:

  • An initial review of need in which goals for recovery are set.
  • A physiotherapy programme according to those needs and goals.
  • Cognitive exercises.
  • Friendship and support
  • Confidence building
  • Social interaction.
  • Recreation.
  • Refreshment

In addition we offer opportunities for hydrotherapy (water based exercises)

“There is always someone to talk to who can understand the difficulties you have after a stroke”.

Stroke Support meet in three centres. Woolhampton is our main unit and we also use Newbury Nuffield and Riverside community centre.

All venues operate on a weekly basis with a few exceptions in the year, generally at Christmas and with a holiday period in the late summer / early Autumn.

If you have had a stroke please talk to our Family Support Service team about our criteria for entry.

Periodically, we have special events and outdoor visits:

  • In house speakers, Presentations, Slide shows
  • Specialist exercises with Tai Chi, Music therapy, Zumba
  • Visits, e.g., The Hawk Conservancy, The Gainsborough Stud
  • Indoor bowls
