Welcome to MADYSS

In September 2004, MADYSS was developed from the Stroke Association's Family Support Unit at Macclesfield Hospital by a group of younger stroke survivors and their carers from within the borough of Macclesfield and its districts.

Our aim is to support both the stroke survivors and their carers by holding informal monthly meetings and social events.

Each stroke and each individual's response to their new circumstances are unique and the journey back to optimum health is often exceedingly difficult. However, with the right attitude and motivation, together with a fun environment and support from others who know the challenges and frustrations, we believe rehabilitation as possible.

MADYSS is open to any stroke survivor and carer who are looking to become part of a supportive community.
