To acknowledge Stroke awareness month, the Palmerston North EASIE Living Retail Store and Demonstration Centre have invited Nicola Hosking from Stroke Central New Zealand to come and provide some stroke awareness and prevention education.
Date: Monday 21st March 2022
Venue: EASIE Living and Demonstration Centre, 585 Main Street, Palmerston North
Phone: 06 35EASIE (06 353 2743)
With the new traffic light system, registration is essential so we can
manage the numbers of attendees. All pre-cautions will be made in
alignment to the area traffic light colour.
Nicola will provide information on:
• teaching you to recognise the signs of stroke and
• discuss ways to reduce the risk of suffering a stroke.
Nicola, who previously worked as a nurse, will explain how Stroke Central can support you and your whanau and we are hoping to hear from some people who are happy to share their stories and how they overcame their barriers.
Finally, Kate our resident Occupational Therapist, will demonstrate some equipment that can help you live as independently as possible.
