The Kentuckiana Stroke Association is making a commitment to fulfill our promise to honor those who so bravely fought to come back after suffering from a stroke. Through vibrant color, Stroke Survivor or Caregiver Honoree Balloons represent the diverse members of our community whose lives have been forever impacted by a stroke. Each year at the Strides for Stroke Walk the web based honorees and memorials comes to life. Walkers, Rollers, Strollers and Runners alike get a first hand look at what they are raising support for while making strides in stroke awareness with every foot of ground they cover.
SHANE RUSSELL, 45, of Jeffersonville, Indiana in March 2014 suffered a Stroke. His life was forever changed after that day. In the year following his recover Shane was able to regain much of his independence and started a new career that he is enjoying. That isn't to say that his struggles with the side effects he carries with him from his stroke are not real. This Honoree Balloon was given to Shane as a reminder of how far he has come since his Stroke and the continuous focus he needs to keep on his health to work to keep it his last. Expressions of encouragement can be made to the Kentucky and Southern IN Stroke Association.
Chances are, most Stroke Survivors who did not regain back a good portion of their independence after their Stroke had to make the transition in a nursing home or an assisted living facility. Maybe your loved one was in the hospital or at the end was under hospice care but no matter where health care is being provided here in Kentucky and Southern IN, you’ll find hardworking, caring CNAs. They perform a job that is both physically and emotionally demanding. Strokes impact so many functions of the body and CNAs assist Stroke Survivors with nearly all of them. In fact, CNAs provide nearly 90% of the hands-on care for our Stroke Survivors in care facilities right here in our community. Thank You from all of us here at Alee Solutions to each of you.
