What's Been Happening under COVID-19 16 June 2020
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.
