Stroke Association Spain are developing and expanding at an astonishing rate. Since moving into their new premises at The Cultural Centre in Benijofar, in September last year, they have been able to offer better and more varied help and facilities for stroke sufferers and their carers.
Currently help is available at the centre on Wednesday and Friday afternoons, but from April the centre will be open on Monday afternoons too, in order to meet the increased demand.
The workers are all volunteers and assist with documentation to access other help and benefits; provide individually tailored physiotherapy; blood pressure monitoring; lessons in Spanish conversation; card-making and support for the carers, and social events.
The Group would welcome any new volunteers, especially if they have craft skills which they would share as part of the rehabilitation process.
On 24th March Stroke Association are holding a Spring Fair/Open Day, from 10am to 3pm. There will be a range of stalls offering cakes, jewellery, clothes, books, art equipment, tombola etc. A BBQ and music to entertain. So come along to view the facilities, meet some of the people who have had strokes and are mending well, and pick up a bargain for yourself.
