The statistics are sobering. According to the American Stroke Association, one in six people worldwide will have a stroke in their lifetime, and stroke claims a life every six seconds. Stroke is the number four cause of death, and the leading cause of adult disability in the United States.
Here in the Coachella Valley, there are as many as 15,000 people who are suffering from the results of stroke. Despite the staggering numbers, there is some good news. If you are a stroke survivor here in the Valley, you are able to avail yourself of the services provided by Stroke Recovery Center (SRC). We are the nation’s only free, comprehensive stroke and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) recovery center, and have been helping people recover their lives for the last 35 years.
