Stroke Support Groups

The Irish Heart Foundation has launched a new telephone and online support service for stroke survivors who have been recently discharged from hospital during the coronavirus pandemic.

Stroke patients are classified as an “at-risk group” by the HSE, and therefore those recovering in hospital are being discharged back to the community as soon as they are medically fit, to reduce their risk of contracting COVID-19 and continue their recovery at home.

To support them in their recovery specialist staff at the Irish Heart Foundation will be available on the phone and online to answer any queries recently discharged stroke patients may have and provide advice and information based on each individual patient’s need.

Call 01 6685001 or email support@irishheart.ie  Monday to Friday 9 am to 5 pm.

All patients who are being discharged from hospital after their stroke will be offered the new service which is provided by Irish Heart Foundation nurses, support group coordinators, stroke survivors and carers

We also have a number of private Facebook groups to give you access to expert information and to allow you to share your thoughts and concerns with similarly affected people:

We are accepting new members in all of our groups.
