Stroke Support Services
In 2016 Synapse welcomed a merger with the Stroke Association of
Queensland, collectively referred to as Synapse.
Through the Synapse Options service, we now have a valued stroke
peer support service run by volunteers are themselves stroke
Volunteers offer a 'lived experience' perspective to those who
have suffered from stroke, their families and friends. Volunteers
provide information on services that have worked for them, details
about stroke support groups that regularly meet and the invaluable
peer support reminding stroke survivors, they are not alone.
If you or someone you know would like to talk with our volunteer
stroke peer support service, please call 1800 673 074 or email
Alongside the peer support service, the Synapse stroke
volunteers have created an information handout which consists of
information specifically related to stroke, from prevention of
further strokes to hints and tips of living with the effects of
stroke. These are provided free of charge to stroke survivors,
their families and friends.
If you or someone you know would like a copy of this handout,
please phone Synapse on 1800 673 074 or email
