Members of Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan (RIM) Novi Center’s Stroke Support Group are getting their lives and game back on course. The group recently started a golf league for stroke survivors and their family members. Some of the golfers are ambulatory and some golf from a specialized adapted golf cart. The cart has a swivel seat that allows golfers to hit the ball from a seated or supported standing position. According to RIM Novi’s social worker and case manager, Jay Devereaux, the league has provided physical and psychological benefits. “Golf is a very physical game so it is great for them to be outside and exercising and from a psychological standpoint it is a huge self-esteem builder for them to be out here and enjoying something they loved prior to their stroke.”
