Life After Stroke

On-going Consumer Consultation Forum - Phase 2

The Life After Stroke Program

Tuesday, March 4th, 9:30am-1:30pm

397 Barkers Road

Kew, VIC

The Forum will be held in the Function Room at Melbourne Cricket Club - Kew Sports Club.

Stroke survivors, carers and professionals who are interested in vocational/ employment matters are invited to take part.

The forum is free of charge and a light lunch will be provided on the day.

The Life After Stroke Program aims to provide opportunities for people following a stroke to engage in meaningful community based activity (vocational or lifestyle). The program involves one-on-one advocacy and mentoring involving various agencies and volunteer support by Rotary and the Stroke Association of Victoria, thereby avoiding or diminishing incidence of frustration and/or depression amongst stroke survivors and their carers.

The program is currently in the pilot phase, involving relevant organisations within the City of Booroondara.

This forum is a follow up to the initial meeting on the 30th of October 2013. The forum objectives are to determine the assistance Stroke Survivors need, beyond the clinical form, to return to vocational and employment activities. Participants will be given the option to participate in break out sessions on the following topics:

  • Advocacy
  • Employment barriers
  • Volunteer work
  • Community Based Recreation
  • Retirement planning
  • Training

There will be opportunities for feedback & the outcomes will act as a guide to our project officer who will collate them.
