The number of stroke patients is rising at an alarming rate, and the age of stroke patients is getting younger. Today, stroke can hit anyone of any age at any time. This debilitating illness can lead to physical disability. Survivors are thus living in a compromised living condition with no one to turn to. Life can be bleak for stroke survivors. At Stroke Support Station (S3), we believe in improving the quality of life of these stroke survivors through a series of therapies and programmes. But all these can only happen with your generosity. No matter how much you contribute, it will make a major difference to a stroke survivor. And eventually, to bring on a smile on their faces.
All funds raised will help to subsidize the step-down care for stroke survivor and their caregivers in their stroke recovery journey. It also goes to sustaining the numerous programmes, education, training, and campaigns conducted by S3. Your contributions will enable S3 to extend our assistance and support to more stroke survivors who need it.
About the Charity
Stroke Support Station (S3) is a non-profit organisation. Your generous donations will go a long way towards helping primarily stroke survivors in subsidizing our programmes and services.
We don't believe in giving up on stroke survivors.
We don't believe that caregivers should go unnoticed, unappreciated and unsupported.
We don't believe that any of the 5,500 of 6,600 patients who survive a stroke should end up facing the walls at home forever, after discharged from hospitals or rehabilitation centres.
We believe that stroke survivors, regardless of financial status, should have access to an avenue to recovery.
We believe in Hope.
S3 was set up by a group of volunteers from different walks of life. They bring with them different skillsets, and aim to:
- bridge the gap in the current landscape in the care of stroke survivors, their family members and caregivers.
- enhance stroke survivors' recovery opportunities and improve their overall quality of life.
We will achieve it through:
- providing a series of innovative programmes, incorporating physio-emotional, speech, and occupational therapies.
- providing social-emotional support, seeking to rebuild confidence and independence.
- providing support services, education and training to stroke survivors as well as their caregivers, family members, volunteers, and members of other VWOs that care for stroke survivors.
- using evidence-based and sustainable methodologies.
- using new approaches, technology and methodologies.
