COVID guidelines for safety currently prevent us from in-person, indoor meetings, therefore, we have moved to the ZOOM platform. We know this won’t be the same and might be difficult for some. For others, where travel has prevented them from attending in the past, the online meeting might be easier. We hope you’ll join us for this new ONLINE manner of meeting as we continue to share with each other the challenges of recovery and welcome new folks affected by Brain Aneurysms. Specific meeting information will be posted on our Facebook page including planned speakers and info on how to REGISTER to participate either by internet video or by phone.
The Maine Brain Aneurysm Support Group offers information, education, encouragement and understanding to all individuals who have been affected by a brain aneurysm.
Survivors, family members, caregivers and anyone interested are welcome to attend. The meetings will provide information and education on a variety of topics relating to the treatment and recovery process for both survivors and caregivers. At each meeting, we have a guest speaker that gives short presentations and then open the floor for discussion.
The meetings also provide an opportunity for reassurance and personal exchange between survivors and caregivers.
Please be aware that these meetings are not held to offer specific medical advice, but to provide peer support and education. This is a great place for you to meet and share with others who have been through similar experiences.
DAY: Last Thursday of each month
TIME: 6:00-7:30 P.M.
LOCATION: Dana Health Education Center (see specific location above)
Maine Medical Center, 22 Bramhall St. Portland, ME
