The Stroke Club is a vital part of our work providing a social setting
for stroke survivors as well as carers. The Stroke Club meets
every second and fourth Thursday evening of the month at Sight Matters (Manx Blind Welfare Society) in
It is an informal get together where members enjoy: speakers,
entertainers, slide shows and video nights. There is always light
refreshments and a raffle. To add variety we often organise trips out. On average about 35 members attend regularly.
The function of the club is flexible and ultimately determined
by the needs of the members but we realise that not all those affected
by stroke can join in. In such cases we are still here to help in any
way we can.
Isolation can be a depressing problem and the club is an ideal place to meet other understanding people in a similar situation.
