Stroke Safety Workshop @ the Library
Join the Stroke Foundation for this informative session on stroke awareness and prevention.
Many of the facilitators have experienced a stroke or have had someone close to them who has had a stroke, making the session more personal and powerful for those who attend.
Over the course of 40 minutes the speaker will discuss:
- What stroke is - what happens when someone is having a stroke and the different types of stroke
- How to recognise the signs of stroke – learn the vital FAST signs which will help you recognise when someone is having a stroke
- What to do if someone is having a stroke – if you or someone else experiences the signs of stroke, no matter how long they last, call 000 immediately
- How to prevent stroke – steps that can be taken to better understand and reduce the risk of having a stroke
This is a great session for those who are at risk or know someone at risk of a stroke, those working in the health or aged care sector.
