Working Age Group Stroke ( WAGS) is a fun loving support group for Stroke Survivors under the age of 67 and their carers and families. They meet monthly at the Mingara Recreation Club between 10AM and Noon on the first Saturday of every month except if the day falls on a long weekend. The Group also meets at other times for social outings with a view to integration back into the community and to form friendships and support.
The main aim of WAGS is to raise awareness within the community and also to help the stroke survivor and their carer and families to gain information and encouragement, develop friendships and establish essential support networks. WAGS is one of the strongest stroke support groups within NSW. In Australia, there are approximately 60,000 new or recurrent strokes per year with about 800 of those on the Central Coast. WAGS members regularly work with the heath professional to better understand Stoke and improve the outcomes for people that suffer a stroke in the future. To find more about WAGS contact usss here.
We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like Clubs NSW on the Central Coast and you. Thank you for your time and donations that makes this possible!
A HIGH PRIORITY NOTICE FROM David AND Brenda : The Stroke Recovery Association of NSW have just sent an email asking that ALL Stroke Club activities need to be suspended until further notice. This is a precaution as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). This was because of recommendations by NSW Health and the decision was made by the SRA Board to follow this advice, recommending that vulnerable people limit close contact. We will keep WAGS informed of any change to this decision.
