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.HEADLINES
Peter Stephenson, 6 November 1945–23 November 2017
Peter was the Chairman of MADYSS for eight years, a position he was extremely proud to have held.
His caring and compassionate nature, along with the ability to make members feel welcome and valued, were some of the qualities he brought to MADYSS members and their families.
He had a wicked sense of humour, was full of fun and brought many a smile to the faces of so many people.
Peter will be sadly missed but never forgotten.
Calendar for 2018 available!
Click here to see the poster.
The theme chosen for next year's calendar is Wildlife of Peru. This is the subject of a trip taken there last year by our own MADYSS member, Sheila Blamire who, as some of our newer members may not be aware, produces the calendar for MADYSS each year and is an excellent photographer.
The cost of the calendar remains at £10, which is great value. If you would like to purchase one or more calendars, please place your order by the September Flower Pot meeting if possible, or email Sheila at email@example.com, or call her on 01565 830168.
There will be a copy available for viewing by potential purchasers at the upcoming Flower Pot meetings.
As in previous years, all profits from sales of the calendar will go to MADYSS and help subsidise your events!!.
