The Fonz, AKA Henry Winkler, is stepping up and doing some MAJOR good! He's partnering with the National Stroke Association to celebrate caregivers during National Family Caregivers Month this November.
Sadly, Henry’s mother suffered a stroke in 1987 and lived with the results for more than 10 years. Her recovery was minimal and she struggled with simple, every-day tasks. He said the hardest thing for him was to be the caregiver he wanted to be. Caregivers and family members play a vital role in a stroke survivor’s recovery, and he knows that better than anyone.
Caregivers can find coping strategies through National Stroke Association’s iHOPE: When Caregiving Is Stressful webinar or by connecting with more than 1,700 other caregivers at Careliving Community, an online community that provides a place for discussion, connection and support.
We wish him luck on his journey to help those in need!!
