The following activities are offered at the Vernon Branch:
- Arrival and socializing
- Exercises (an exercise adaptable program is led by the Coordinator)
- Branch news and planning and stroke related info
Remaining 60 minutes varies from week to week and may focus on memory, speech, coordination or other effects of stroke and may involve individual or group activities or a guest speaker.
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.
