Newswire: Western Pennsylvania Stroke Survivors Call on Community for Help

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

A group of clinical and business leaders asked for community help today to prevent Western Pennsylvania from losing its only non-profit support program for people struggling to recover from stroke.

Stroke Survivor Connection needs critical near-term capital to overcome budget shortfalls created by regulatory changes and the economic downturn. Stroke Survivor Connection traces its roots back nearly a hundred years as an initiative that evolved from the historic Visiting Nurse Association.

Each year, Stroke Survivor Connection provides free physical, cognitive, emotional, and social rehabilitation to hundreds of stroke survivors and their caregivers in more than 25 local communities. Recognized for its innovative approach, the organization is noted for developing a rehabilitative support program that is considered unique nationally.

“During the last 10 years, we have made enormous progress in delivering high quality clinical care to patients who suffer from stroke that have lessened stroke disability and death,” said Dr. Ashis Tayal, Medical Director at the Comprehensive Stroke Center at Allegheny General Hospital and a Stroke Survivor Connection board member. “Stroke Survivor Connection fills a critical gap in the rehabilitative process. We cannot allow this organization to disappear.”
