Workshop Description…

This is an opportunity for survivors, families and friends of people with a stroke or brain injury to learn about some of the services and programs available in their communities.

Families and survivors will be able to meet with one another and learn from each others’ personal experiences.

Everyone is welcome.

Registration is not required, although we would like to know how many of your family members and friends will be joining us. Please let us know by contacting 604-737-6269.
