The Hospital Visitor Program continues to contact survivors and family members new to stroke in rehabilitation programs at Memorial Medical Center (LBMMC) and St. Mary Medical Center (SMMC).
The visitors are stroke survivor and family member volunteers selected from the program and trained as visitors. This program is modeled after the Mended Hearts visitor program. The visits are to assure people new to stroke that they are not alone and to provide contact information for resources related to stroke recovery. Contacts average approximately 10 per week.
