Participants’ Comments 21/9:
Alice, stroke caregiver
“For today's session Teck Hin & I find the physical workout with the therapists and added on music rhythm very good and invigorating.
The hands on for the simple to make healthy snacks by the 2 young ladies was fun.
Everyone at SNSA is very friendly and kind.”

Jane, stroke caregiver
“It was an enjoyable and fruitful session for my hubby and myself too. Exercises by the physio Therapists were not too difficult and activity like kicking the ballon was fun . Had opportunity to meet up with some of the stroke survivors and their caregivers too. Many thanks to Poh Choo and all who were involved in organising the session..”

Jackie, stroke survivor
“While doing the exercise I couldn't help thinking of the session which was to follow! We learnt how to make my favourite dessert which is ondeh-ondeh, albeit a healthy version using coconut milk, gula Melaka and Chia seeds. Yummy!”

Tue 17 Sep 2019, 3-4pm @ Central Public Library (Multi-purpose Room)

Singapore National Stroke Association (SNSA) team up with Stroke Services Improvement (SSI) in collaboration with National Library Board (NLB) in the National Stroke Awareness Campaign this year. This year’s campaign focuses on educating the public to recognize stroke signs using F.A.S.T. (Face, Arm, Speech, Time) acronyms and seek early treatment at the hospital by calling 995 for an ambulance. The campaign also promotes stroke prevention aspect targeting the 3 main risk factors for stroke: hypertension (high blood pressure), atrial fibrillation (irregular heart rhythm) and smoking.

Our SNSA Aanandha Sharurajah shares his stroke journey in English to about 40 attendees at Central Public Library.

Look out for the rest of 11 library venues during the next 3 months for these Stroke Awareness Talks.

Participants’ comments on Sat 14/9
Cassandra, Caregiver
“I thought today's movement & singing segment was gd - energising. The 2nd segment was ok, I guess cos the topic of mid autumn festival is not one that is celebrated much. Last segment was gd too. I like the encouraging & positive atmosphere. Thank you Poh Choo & gang for the wonderful work you're doing”

Jackie, survivor
“A good session. We were engaged in vocal exercies through singing therapy and also had an introduction into the history of the moon cake festival..“

Aunty Linda, caregiver
“Bravado to SNSA and volunteers for planning and organising engaging activities, using the mid autumn festival as the theme. Very relevant indeed in reminding us of culture with this event, as we may forget moving into the digital age. Again fun and joy shared by stroke survivors with aphasia, exercising with speech in mind and during sing-along session.Yummy mooncakes and pomelos at tea break.”
