Croí Connects in the Community – May Health Events
Thu, 11 May, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Have you experienced a stroke or cardiac event?
Croí, the heart and stroke charity, is delighted to announce three in-person events throughout May in three different locations aimed at those who have experienced a stroke or cardiac event.
The Croí Health Team is thrilled to be able to bring our Croí Connects events to communities across Galway, Mayo and Roscommon throughout the month of May. We have planned an engaging programme of talks and information stands at these three locations.
The aim of these events is to provide information and support to people who have experienced a cardiac or stroke event. The events will give members of the public the opportunity to hear from and interact with experts in the areas of heart and stroke support. The events will also enable people living with a heart or stroke condition to come together as a community and benefit from social support and shared experiences.
If you are living with a stroke, or cardiac condition or have had a cardiac event, this is a valuable opportunity to meet the Croí multidisciplinary health team for a free information evening, to ask questions, meet others with similar experiences and get the support and guidance you need to manage your condition as effectively as possible.
The events will run from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm each evening. The dates and locations are as follows:
📍 Galway – May 11th, in the Croí Heart & Stroke Centre, Galway City (H91 FF68)
📍 Roscommon – May 15th, in The Abbey Hotel, Roscommon Town (F42 F992)
📍 Mayo – May 25th, in the Breaffy House Resort, Castlebar (F23 R253)
The Croí multidisciplinary health team, consisting of cardiac nurses, a health psychologist and a cardiac and weight management dietitian, and will be in attendance at each event providing information on topics such as diet, exercise, heart health, stroke and our Croí Connects heart and stroke support services. We will have a short talk each night with members of the health team covering the areas of support we can offer. The Croí Nursing Team will also be offering free blood pressure checks at each event.
The events are free and registration is not necessary but we encourage you to fill out a short form prior to attending one of these events to help us to assist you as best we can. Tea and coffee will be provided at each of these events.
