The following activities are offered at the Comox Branch:
- Brain stimulating activity (e.g., jigsaw puzzles)
- Physical activity or game (e.g., exercise, games, bocce ball, Tai Chi)
- Snack and socializing
- Finish with a speaker, roundtable or topic of interest
At times the Coordinator organizes a speaker, entertainment or music therapy programming and seasonal event (e.g., summer barbeque) and outings are planned.
Branch programs are for stroke survivors living in the community and their caregivers. Stroke survivors must be capable of participating meaningfully in the program. Stroke survivors must be independent in feeding, mobility, toileting and personal hygiene or have a caregiver accompany them who can provide the necessary assistance. We do not have the resources to accommodate people who have significant behavioural problems such as aggressive/challenging behaviour, sexual inappropriateness, or destructive tendencies.
