A CUP of tea and a chat were on the menu at Leamington Spa Hospital.
Speech and language therapists hosted their annual conversation tea party for former patients who have suffered strokes.
Those who are in recovery often struggle with conversation so the tea party, which took place on Feldon Ward on Thursday, is designed to help them practise their communication skills in a relaxed and friendly environment.
Aids, volunteers and members of the speech and language team were on hand to help during the day.
Speech and language therapist, Nicola Hughes, said: “It is reassuring for people to know they are not alone when it comes to finding communication difficult.
“We do not want people to feel isolated in dealing with their communication needs so by inviting them back it lets us see how they are getting on.
“Recovery from a stroke does not stop once a person is discharged from the hospital so we want to show our support to those who are continuing their rehabilitation in the community.”
