Support Groups

At the Abilities Research Center, we are proud to offer support groups for patients who would like to engage with others living with the same condition. Support groups are an excellent way of helping rehabilitation patients cope with their condition and help build a network of friends who can guide them through the process of rehabilitation.


Patients who have suffered a stroke can take part in the Precision Recovery online program. Precision Recovery is a website designed for individuals who have experienced a stroke as well as their caregivers to learn about what to expect during their recovery and useful tips to help achieve the best treatment outcomes. The program is for everyone who has had a stroke or anyone in the care community to explore, learn, and share personal experiences.
