Stroke Peer Visiting Program
Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota
Former stroke patients volunteer to visit current stroke patients at Abbott Northwestern and United hospitals as part of Sister Kenny Rehabilitation Institute's Stroke Peer Visiting Program. The role of the peer visitor is to share their stroke experiences, listen to a patient's concerns and provide support.
This service is available to patients receiving inpatient and outpatient services. Call Sue Newman at 612-863-4996 for more information.
