HOPE HELP GUIDE published by The Stroke of Hope Club, Inc. The Stroke of Hope Club, Inc., a not-for-profit organization, was founded in October, 1984. Our mission is to work toward increased awareness of stroke prevention, improved community education, and –above all- to provide information, education and support to stroke “victors”, their families and friends. The Stroke of Hope Club, Inc. provides services to all stroke “victors”, their families and friends, recognizing that no two strokes are the same and no two families coping with stroke do so in the same way. This “Hope Help Guide” is provided to you as an educational tool. The information to follow is designed to help you and your family better understand stroke and the process of rehabilitation. Stroke victors and their families have reported that the Hope Help Guide was instrumental in assisting them in their journey to the “new normal” of life after stroke. Our volunteer “Rehab Buddies” are prepared to help you further. The “Rehab Buddy” program at the Stroke of Hope Club, Inc. involves a weekly telephone contact from a volunteer who provides support for a stroke victor and/or a family member. This program has made a huge impact in the lives of many stroke victors and their families. If you would like to learn more about our Rehab Buddies program, or have any questions about life after stroke, please contact the Stroke of Hope Club, Inc. at: (561) 627-2202. This is our “virtual” phone number. Simply leave a message and we will return your call as soon as we are available. We also invite you to visit our website: . Page 1 1

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
