BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - Local stroke survivors can now be empowered through golfing with the "Saving Strokes" rehabilitation program.
The program gives them a great way to make new friends and to practice their motor skills.
It is the third year in a row for the "Saving Strokes" rehabilitation day at the Stockdale Country Club.
"It's a slower-paced sport, that focuses on eye-hand coordination, having them re-learn those cognitive skills and retrain their pathways," said Alison Elam, San Joaquin Community Hospital Program Coordinator.
Elton Kelly suffered a stroke four years ago, and says the event is a good way to meet other survivors as well.
