Stroke Club (SGH @BVH)

The Stroke Club was jointly set up by the Singapore National Stroke Association (SNSA) and the Singapore General Hospital. The SNSA was established in 1996 by stroke survivors, caregivers, medical personnel and health sciences professionals to provide psychological support for stroke survivors and care givers. SNSA is also a charitable organization affiliated to the national Council of Social Services and its activities are focused on facilitating positive post-stroke adjustment.

A stroke club is a place where stroke survivors and their caregivers can share their experiences with one another. It is designed to be a: 

  • Support group where members can help each other by sharing their burdens and worries and receive counseling, advice and support;
  • Educational center to reinforce the importance of managing risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes mellitus and obesity; and 
  • Resource center for stroke survivors and caregivers to better understand the psychosocial aspects of stroke and the avenues for help and advice.

Stroke Club is held once monthly on the second Wednesday of the month at SGH at Bright Vision Hospital (BVH), from 3.30 pm to 5.00 pm.

Stroke Befriending Service at SGH @ BVH
The SNSA has teams of volunteers who visit stroke survivors at major hospitals. Volunteers will offer a listening ear, encouragement, support and advice to stroke survivors and their caregivers. Stroke survivors are strongly encouraged to join the befriending services to share their experience so that others may benefit.
