Rocky Mountain Stroke Center's mission is to provide information, rehabilitation, and support to stroke survivors and their families in Colorado, and provide education to the greater community about stroke.
Check out NEW virtual support options!
We miss you all! At Rocky Mountain Stroke Center (RMSC), we continue to value the health and well-being of all of our clients, contract therapists and staff members. Colorado is currently under a stay at home order and the United States social distancing guidelines have been extended through April 30th.
Rocky Mountain Stroke Center will continue to be closed through April 30th, 2020.
This closure includes all programs and classes that take place at our office in Littleton, all in-person stroke and caregiver support groups, and warm water pool therapy at the Buck Recreation Center.
The good news is that we are now offering individual counseling sessions, skill building labs, and support groups through Zoom, an application that allows us to virtually connect with one another. These sessions and groups can be accessed by computer/laptop, tablet, cellphone or landline.
RMSC will also be updating our Facebook on a daily basis. Posts will include community resources and activities to do from home like brain teasers, cognitive and aphasia exercises, physical therapy exercises and stretches, mindfulness practice, and more!
Our commitment to working with you and the rest of the stroke community has not and
will not change! We are available by phone and email. Please stay in touch!
