Templeton Stroke Recovery Branch helps outpatients in the community

Feb 22, 2018 | News

There are 6,500 strokes in BC every year. Having a stroke can be devastating. Hospitals do a great job of saving people who survive a stroke but sooner or later those survivors go back home. What then?

The Stroke Recovery Association of BC (SRABC) is a non-profit organization. We have been helping stroke survivors and their caregivers throughout the province after they leave hospital since 1979. We are committed to assisting them to improve their overall quality of life.

SRABC also has around 40 local Stroke Recovery Branches across the province. Branches provide a friendly place where stroke survivors, families, friends and caregivers can get encouragement, help and support. We offer a range of programs designed to support stroke survivors in the community after they leave hospital.

The programs at our stroke recovery branches include:

  • Physical exercises
  • Communication and memory exercises
  • Social interaction and recreation
  • Support from fellow stroke survivors
  • Caregiver support
  • Stroke education
  • Help finding other health and community resources

We also offer other programs, support, information and education to stroke survivors and their caregivers in BC. To find out more please contact us or visit our website at www.srabc.ca.

The Templeton Stroke Recovery Branch located at Templeton Pool is the only English speaking branch in East Vancouver.

The Templeton Pool address is 700 Templeton Drive, Vancouver, V5L 4N8. We meet every Tuesday from 10:30 a.m. - 1 p.m., in the Activity Room. Drop-ins are welcome. For more information, please email: templetonsrabc@gmail.com or call: 778-801-9605.
