Vision: A life after stroke for everyone.
Mission: Provide every stroke survivor and carer access
to the information and support services they need to re-engage with their
of community-based support services in every region of Victoria to aid in
recovery post clinical care, with documented measurable outcomes.
The Stroke Association of Victoria (SAV) is the only
dedicated community-based support service for people re-entering their lives
after having a stroke. We are developing Stroke Support Centres across
Victoria, focused on ensuring community inclusion for stroke survivors.
Our Stroke Support Centres aim to bridge the gap
from discharge to community re-engagement. Through effective connections with
community, general practitioners and allied-health providers, we aim to assist
each stroke survivor with their longer-term recovery. We do this through
non-clinical, community-based support and self-led recovery including
communication, mood, mobility and community engagement.
