Stroke Programme Volunteer

Laura Fergusson Rehabilitation specialises in the care and rehabilitation of clients who have experienced a neurological or physical injury or are experiencing the symptoms of a deteriorating neurological disease. Our aim is to promote as much function and independence as possible, while at the same time facilitating adjustment to disability, promoting self-determination and valuing quality of life.

As part of our service, we offer programmes specific for stroke rehabilitation. Stroke Programmes run Monday to Thursday for eight weeks at a time. The programmes include a one hour exercise session, followed by an hour of education.

Within our Stroke Programme, volunteers independently run the tea and coffee, and afternoon tea service, Monday and Wednesday, 12.30pm to 2.30pm. This voluntary role involves greeting and conversing with clients, and preparing hot drinks and small snacks. At the end of the session, volunteers aid physiotherapists in escorting clients back to the main entrance. Additionally, the role requires tidying up the education seminar room and placing dishes into the dishwasher.

Our clients range from 16 to 64 years old, with the majority being over 40.
