The Island Stroke Support Network (ISSN) launched by March of Dimes Canada will enable stroke survivors and their caregivers to make meaningful connections through one-to-one peer support, stroke support clubs, and technology training. ISSN connects stroke survivors and their caregivers with highly trained, caring volunteers who are also stroke survivors, for one-on-one virtual support. Volunteers will share their lived experiences with stroke to bring hope and information to participants as they navigate their personalized stroke recovery plan. Additionally, Stroke Support Clubs held at select public libraries will allow stroke survivors and their caregivers to share their experiences and practical advice with one another. Each year, about 350 people will have a stroke in PEI. Peer support programs such as the ISSN are an important resource for fostering social connection and emotional support, and empowering people to rebuild their lives and achieve their goals after stroke.
