We are a support group of stroke survivors and their carers based in the eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia.
The BSSG was founded in 2002 by Jenny Cheng and is now recognised as one of the most active and innovative community-based stroke support groups in Australia. It now has a membership of over 100 stroke survivors, carers, volunteers and friends. We hold two meetings a month in the St George's Hospital in Cotham Road, Kew, provide a number of activities and programs for our members, publish a quarterly Newsletter and a website.
Some of the groups activities include Lawn Bowls, Exercise Classes, Calligraphy, Tai chi, Woodworking, Gardening, Art and Singing.
The cost of membership of the BSSG is minimal, at only $10 per year.
IS THERE A FACILITY FOR THE PERSON I AM CARING FOR TO BE LOOKED AFTER WHILE I'M ATTENDING THE MEETING?
