HSHS St. Elizabeth’s Hospital to host Stroke Support Group meeting, October 3


(O’FALLON, IL)  – To serve patients and the community, HSHS St. Elizabeth's Hospital offers a free stroke support group for stroke survivors and their families. 
 
The next meeting will be held on Wednesday, October 3 from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m., in St. Elizabeth’s St. Francis room, located adjacent to the hospital lobby, at 1 St. Elizabeth’s Blvd., O’Fallon, IL. 
 
The upcoming session's topic is “The Emotional Side of Having a Stroke” and will be presented by Rev. Chance Beeler, Spiritual Care Facilitator, at St. Elizabeth’s Hospital. The topic will cover strategies to cope with emotional changes that can occur after an event, such as a stroke.
 
The goal of the support group is to foster a better understanding of stroke recovery, rehabilitation and prevention of recurrent strokes while providing a way for stroke survivors to meet others with similar challenges. Caregivers and family members of stroke patients are also offered an open atmosphere for sharing and for supporting each other.
 
An additional meeting is planned for December 5.  For more information, call Christy at 618-234-2120, ext. 52004.
