Helderberg Stroke Support Group (HSSG) is an NPO that has been serving stroke survivors in the Helderberg Basin for 27 years.
We run weekly therapeutic groups in local communities (Strand, Rusthof/Gustrouw, Sir Lowry’s Pass, Lwandle/Nomzamo, Macassar, and Grabouw). Our groups are run by experienced therapists with an interest in stroke rehabilitation. Group sessions are 2-3 hours in duration and consist of exercises, cognitive and perceptual activities, speech exercises, informative talks, and regular discussions.
We work closely with private and public sectors for referrals.
HSSG also rents out equipment to stroke survivors at a small fee (walking frames, wheelchairs etc.). No charge is asked for stroke survivors to attend our sessions.
