Irish Heart Foundation: Our Services
We are living in difficult and uncertain times and are very aware of the extra challenges people living with the effects of heart disease and stroke face.
The Irish Heart Foundation runs 21 stroke support groups and 5 heart failure groups around the country.
We also have support groups for people with cardiomyopathy, Long QT syndrome and spontaneous coronary artery dissection (SCAD), as well as groups for people with ICDs and for families who have lost a loved one to SADS.
All these groups have moved to telephone and online support.
We have also launched a new service for people living with heart failure. Join our community to meet and learn from others living with heart failure to help you cope better and feel less isolated.
We have a number of private Facebook groups to give you access to expert information and to allow you to share your thoughts and concerns with similarly affected people:
- Heart Support Network – a Facebook group for people with heart failure and other heart conditions and their carers.
- Life after Stroke – a Facebook group for stroke survivors and their carers.
- Irish Heart Foundation Carers’ Group – this Facebook group is specifically for carers of stroke survivors.
