About the Camp

For stroke survivors and their caregivers, finding ways to cope with a new way of life can be difficult; however, since 2004, the Retreat and Refresh Stroke Camp has made that transition a little easier.

Retreat and Refresh Stroke Camp provides stroke survivors and caregivers an informal weekend for education, relaxation, socialization and support.

During the education session at camp, attendees learn about new technologies, services and equipment. Campers are also informed on topics such as speech and language resources, handicapped recreational equipment, diabetes, physical therapy, depression and nutrition.

Retreat and Refresh Stroke Camp also provides survivors and caregivers with various therapy treatment options that can be used at home.

If you or your loved one has suffered a stroke, support groups are available at Baptist Memphis for all caregivers and survivors. The group meets the first Wednesday of each month from 10-11:30 a.m. in the Powell Library at Baptist Memphis.
