Peer Visitor Program

Stroke Peer Group

The American Heart Association /American Stroke Association, in collaboration with the University at Buffalo, Buffalo State College Speech Language and Hearing Clinics, and Gates Vascular Institute, is privileged to provide the Sharegivers Vistor Program.

The Sharegivers Visitor Program is an education and wellness program for new stroke patients and their caregivers. Our peer visitor volunteers are stroke survivors and caregivers. They have been educated to serve as vital resources to recent stroke survivors and their families.

Through personal visits in the hospital, peer visitors offer information, support, encouragement and hope to patient and families affected by stroke.
