stroke survivor 2 Survivor (SS2S)

Stroke Survivor 2 Survivor (SS2S) is a telephone peer support program for stroke survivors and their caregivers.  The program is run by stroke survivors or caregiver volunteers with special training and overseen by a local hospital on-site coordinator.  The call encourages stroke survivors to self-manage their own care while offering support, guidance and resources.


The American Stroke Association (ASA) and Stroke Survivors Empowering Each Other (SSEEO) share a

common desire to improve the health and quality of life of the more than seven million Americans who

are stroke survivors. We recognize that the stroke experience can feel traumatic and lonely and want to

ensure that survivors and caregivers know they are not alone. We're here to help every step of the way.

That's why our organizations are working together to make the Stroke Survivor 2 Survivor program more widely available through the development of this manual.
