SCSAF now offers counseling services to caretakers of stroke survivors!
SCSAF was honored to be a part of World Stroke Day on Thursday, October 29, 2015 at City Hall to kick off "Train Orlando" along with Mayor Buddy Dyer and Florida Hospital. SCSAF President, Deanna Coopersmith-Marquez spoke about Scott's story and the importance of recognizing the signs of stroke. See her speech and the rest of the speeches from that day here:

Located on the 11th floor of the Ginsburg Tower at Florida Hospital South, the Scott Coopersmith Family waiting room will soon be transformed to an aesthetically pleasing, serene, and healing location for the families of stroke patients being treated in the Neuro Critical Care Unit including game kiosks for families with young children. Plans and construction are under way and the room unveiling is anticipated to be ready for Stroke Awareness Month in May.
The video booklets, currently being developed, will be given to the families of stroke patients and will walk them through exactly what tests and treatments are being done on their loved one and explain what a stroke is and what to expect next.
