Stroke Warning Signs

Recognize the warning signs and call 9-1-1 immediately. This can make the difference between a strong recovery and disability or even death.

  • Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm, or leg, especially on one side of the body
  • Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding
  • Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination
  • Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
  • Sudden severe headache with no known cause 

If you experience any of these warning signs, call 911 immediately.


Stroke Prevention

Stroke is the No. 5 killer and a leading cause of adult disability in America. But you can control and treat several risk factors for stroke.

Stroke Recovery

After a stroke, remember that there is life and hope. Over time, new routines will become a natural part of your daily life. Rehabilitation can help you regain strength, capabilities, and confidence.

Stroke Support Groups

We offer FREE, monthly support groups for stroke survivors and their families. The group provides an opportunity to talk with other stroke survivors and caregivers, share successes and challenges, and learn new information about healthy living from guest speakers.
