Susan Robertson uses her experience in stroke recovery to support new survivors with Peers Fostering Hope.
This hospital visitation program just launched in Windsor, although it's been operating across Ontario since 2013. While doctors and professionals take care of your physical health, recovery can be confusing and lonely, that's where Peers comes in.
Stroke survivors visit new survivors in hospital to share their story and offer the support of someone who has been through the same process.
