Hi, anyone been to one of their events please?
Unfortunately @a.clare71 I haven’t, there aren’t any stroke clubs near to me.
There’s no harm in giving it a go, you could enjoy yourself and want to continue meeting up with others at the club, if it turns out it’s not for you or you didn’t enjoy it, you don’t need to go again.
Keep me updated and let me know know what I’m missing out on
I’m putting in my two pennorth, but I can’t help actually.
Lots of these organisations were virtually brought to a standstill by covid restrictions over meetings.
They are probably now thinking of starting up again.
If you want to know more you could join up and see what, if anything, they have to offer.
"Nothing ventured, nothing gained. "
(Incidentally. My wife joined a carers group and together we took part in a Zoom call. They were friendly and we spent an enjoyable hour with them, just a couple of days ago.)
Zoom calls are relatively easy to set up if you have internet access, a PC, laptop or Smartphone.
I think rps is involved in something of the sort with a Welsh group.
I have also wondered if it would be worth setting up a regular Zoom call through this Forum for its members. The free version of Zoom restricts call length to 40 minutes but that is enough time to get something done. I’m not sure if I could maintain something like that alone, but it isn’t such a big deal. Perhaps I should start a new thread to discuss this.
Sorry I had no intention of hijacking this thread.
Just need a bit more confidence, struggle with new people, and be able to take the ‘L’ plate off my wheeler.
They go for lunch once a month and the theatre if something is on
Hi, there is a zoom call every monday at 11am for all Stroke Association members. I am waiting for joining instructions
Good luck @a.clare71 it will be a great start to gain confidence. Then maybe join in social gatherings. Let us know how you go. Best wishes Loraine
Hopefully. The Zoom was for the Stroke Association Forum…
@a.clare71 this sounds great. Lunch & theatre would be a good way to get to know people. I hope you manage to do one. Let us know how you get on xx
I was talking to Liz Eddowes yesterday. Have you spokejn to Liz? She is the stroke association representative for the Wirral based in West Kirby i think. She was suggesting more and more activity starting up locally.
Im in Pensby are you Wirral based?
