You are here
Bankstown Stroke Support Group, The Stroke Foundation and Canterbury Bankstown Council invite you to a
series of StrokeSafe talks to learn about the most common signs of Stroke (F.A.S.T), and how to reduce your
risk of having a stroke.
Come along, bring a friend, you may be able to save a life of a loved one, work colleague, friend or a member
of the community in distress.
In Australia, a stroke occurs every 19 minutes. It is non discriminatory in age groups, for example; babies can
also have strokes. Although, age does increase your risk. However, 80% of strokes are preventable with a few
reasonably minor life style changes.
These StrokeSafe talks will emphasise the most common stroke symptoms, will explain the two types of stroke
and also educate on the life style changes you can make to reduce your risk.
The talks will be delivered by lived experience stroke survivors. They are willing to share their experiences and
answer any non medical specific questions. They love questions!
