Home Visitors

Stroke Foundation Hamilton also operates a home visitor scheme where stroke club volunteers visit stroke club members and other stroke people in their own homes on a regular basis and keep in regular touch by telephone with members on their contact list.

The stroke club home visitors also visit members in Hamilton City Retirement Villages, Hamilton Rest Homes and Hospitals, or in the Stroke Rehabilitation and other wards at Waikato Hospital, if requested, for companionship and support.

Although the stroke club home visitors are all volunteers, Stroke Foundation Hamilton raises funds to reimburse the volunteers for mileage costs to ensure they are not too much out of pocket in their volunteer role.

To contact a visitor or arrange a visit please call the Home Visitor Coordinator at (07) 855 6440.
