Peer Visitor Program

Community Rehabilitation Hospital North has an outreach program to offer support and encouragement to stroke survivors and family caregivers. The Stroke Connection Peer Visitor program, sponsored by the American Heart Association, is designed to match recovering stroke survivors and caregivers with persons or families who have been recently affected by stroke. We also offer peer visitor programs for patients with spinal cord injuries and amputees.

Peer visitors are specially chosen. They participate in training with a senior peer visitor, during which they learn how to provide visitor support services. Through weekly personal visits, peer visitors meet with patients and family caregivers to provide education, wellness information, advice and support during the difficult periods of recovery.

For more information about the program, please contact Mary Myers at mmyers@chrehab.com or 317-585-5428.
