Simpson Meadows

Downingtown, PA

When the symptoms of a stroke arise, it’s important to be able to recognize them immediately. When you know what stroke looks like — you can observe, recognize, and act in less than five minutes.

What might seem like somewhat strange behavior could actually be indicating a stroke. Jean Gallagher, a nurse from Penn Medicine Chester County Hospital, will teach attendees to think F.A.S.T. and detect signs of a stroke such as Facial drooping, Arm weakness, and Speech difficulties — so you know when it’s Time to call emergency services.

Jean will also educate guests on some of stroke’s biggest enemies such as high blood pressure and offer steps to decrease risk. Also, having a partner or friend who recognizes the symptoms can be one of the biggest stroke savers. So bring your spouse or a friend to Simpson Meadows to learn about stroke awareness.

The presentation will be followed by a delicious lunch and tours of our beautiful community.
