Speaking About Stroke: Learning a Whole New Lifestyle

October 20, 2018  Noon - 2 p.m.

Would you know the signs that a loved one was having a stroke? Would you know the kinds of questions to ask at the hospital if your loved one did have a stroke? Would you know what to expect in terms of recovery or where to turn for support?

If you don’t have all the answers, that’s okay - we can help here at the Dormann Library! On Saturday, October 20th from noon to 2:00 pm, local author Darlene Chissom will be leading a panel discussion on the topic: “Speaking about Stroke: Learning a Whole New Lifestyle.”

Darlene is the author of the book: A Stroke of Love: The Story of One Couple’s Journey Through a Stroke. The book chronicles a catastrophic stroke that her husband experienced and the effects that it had on their relationship and family. Her book was a 2018 Gold Winner in the Human Relations Indie Book Awards in the Medical Issues Category. Copies will be available for purchase following the presentation.

This panel discussion is being sponsored by the Dormann Library and the Steuben County Office of the Aging. Speakers will include Dr. Kristine Perle, M.D., a Guthrie ER Nurse, an Occupational Therapist and Physical Therapist from the Meade Rehabilitation Center, and a stroke survivor. Nicole Walker from the Office of the Aging will share information about resources for caregivers in our community. There will be time for questions following the discussion.

While there is no cost to attend this program, pre-registration is encouraged. Please call the Dormann library at 607-776-4613 to reserve your seat at this event.
