Extend the Quality of Care You Provide to Stroke Survivors with

ShareGivers - a peer visitor program

Implement ShareGivers™ at your facility.

New stroke survivors and caregivers have emotions, concerns and questions that are best addressed by those who have personal experience. That’s why the American Stroke Association developed the ShareGivers Peer Visitor Program. It connects recent stroke patients who are at least 18 months post-stroke with stroke survivors to provide support, information and encouragement.

This important information is delivered by trained peer visitors — stroke survivors who can share their own personal perspective. After completing the ShareGivers™ training course, peer visitors are uniquely equipped with the skills to share their experience, encourage progress and lend support to stroke survivors and their families throughout the recovery process.

Learn why ShareGivers is the perfect complement to your staff.

Support your brand. Implementing ShareGivers is a smart way to reach out to your community in a meaningful way that demonstrates your commitment to quality care.

Reinforce staff directives. Trained peer visitors offer a personal perspective and history that supplement and enhance provider recommendations in a "real life" way.

Increase the effectiveness of secondary prevention messages. Receiving information from others who have experienced a stroke holds special value for new stroke survivors and their caregivers. It’s an excellent way to deliver secondary prevention messages.

Supplement the care provided by your clinical staff. ShareGivers provides additional information on issues new stroke survivors must deal with including:

  • Emotional support
  • Community resources
  • Financial support resources
  • Legal support resources
