Chelsea Community Hospital offers more than emergency or cancer care or a hospital room when you’re sick.
On the first Thursday of each month Janice Collins Shamraj, CTRS, leads a support group for Chelsea stroke survivors. The group meets for an hour from 11 a.m.-noon in the hospital private dining room B.
It’s a place where new and longer-term survivors and their families and caregivers can get together for friendship, support and education in a “light-hearted atmosphere” according to information about the group.
There are focused discussions, parties, picnics and speakers on specific topics as well. Plus, the group sometimes dines out together.
The group is free, but you need to call 475-1064 to register.
