Stroke Foundation New Zealand
National Patient Support Group Service
The Stroke Foundation is the national organisation in New Zealand dedicated to reducing the incidence of stroke, improving treatment outcomes, and supporting those affected by stroke. The Foundation is a not-for-profit organisation that supports a team of Community Stroke Advisors and dozens of stroke clubs throughout New Zealand.
We promote public awareness about the risk factors for stroke and how to recognise the symptoms. We focus on health service delivery to improve acute and rehabilitation hospital services and treatment outcomes. We represent the interests of stroke survivors and their families and work with them to enhance the quality of life of those affected by stroke.
