The Stroke Peer Mentoring Program is run through the Stroke Recovery Association of BC. This free program matches someone living with stroke to a mentor who has had a stroke and who has training to be able to offer support, understanding, and education about issues of stroke and everyday life. Mentors provide this support through telephone conversations, email, and/or 1-to-1 meetings.
A peer mentor does not replace your professional rehab team, but they can be very helpful!
