The Los Angeles Brain Aneurysm Support Group meets on the third Saturday of each month at The Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center. The Support Group is for patients diagnosed with an unruptured brain aneurysm, those having survived a ruptured aneurysm and all caregivers who have supported and taken care of these patients. The meetings provide information and education on a variety of topics relating to the diagnosis, investigation, treatment options, and recovery process for both the survivor and the caregiver. Topics vary meeting to meeting.
A topic is presented to the group, followed by an open forum for discussion. The meetings also provide an opportunity for reassurance and personal exchange between survivors and caregivers. This support group aims to empower the patient and the caregiver in the care and recovery processes.
