American Stroke Foundation
- Nonprofit Member
The American Stroke Foundation provides a unique, post-rehabilitation experience for stroke survivors. We offer classes and wellness programs that are designed to address survivors' physical, cognitive, social and emotional well-being - in a comfortable, welcoming, non-clinical environment. Caregivers also find us to be a valuable resource where they participate in classes and support groups that are designed to address their specific concerns.
We opened our doors at the ASF in 1997 and since then, we've served over 4,000 stroke survivors and their families, regardless of their ability to pay. Through our fitness programs, classes, life skills development, community outings and support groups , the ASF continues its mission of supporting stroke survivors and their families through their ongoing journeys of 'life after stroke'.
The ASF staff partners with community health care professionals, volunteers and student interns to provide our many and varied programs. Under the guidance of these individuals, survivors apply and practice skills to overcome their disabilities and get on with their lives. We do not duplicate other services but complement them, providing the missing link in the continuum of stroke recovery.
