We rely on donations, funding and our own fundraising , for administration, programs and wages for our three paid staff.
Our organisation helps bring stroke people their families/whanau and carers together. We support their self rehabilitation , give them hope and confidence to manage a new way of living.
We are extremely grateful to the donations received, which go toward offering extended services on top of what we offer, for stroke people, like a GYM program plus Physiotherapy assessments to our support provision.
Our Community Coordinator meets people while still in hospital and travels with them on their journey after discharge, coordinating services and meeting their needs.
More about us
Supporting all Stroke Survivors their families/whanau and Carers through their stroke journey. Gisborne Stroke Support provides information, advice, education and advocacy services through out the Tairawhiti Region, "Reducing Risks and Improving Outcomes for all Stroke Survivors. We offer Stroke Rehab Support programs to assist stoke people in their stroke Journey.
While Gisborne Stroke Support rehabilitation support programs had to physically close we ran online exercise and communication classes. These were well supported. Being an essential service provider we maintained contact via zoom, phone, facebook etc with stroke survivors and their families. Additionally other roles were undertaken e.g. personal cares (replacing an over 70s carer), grocery shopping and other supports requested.
Now at Level 1 our physical programs will resume from 15th June with a good number of new clients attending - referrals remained high over lockdown.
