CarePoint Health-Bayonne Medical Center, Temple Emanu-El in Bayonne and Jewish Family Service of MetroWest New Jersey joined together recently to bring stroke education to Bayonne seniors.

The program was held at Temple Emanu-El on Kennedy Boulevard and was led by Gerri Kiefer Necklen, RN, MSN, CarePoint Health’s Stroke Coordinator and Community Educator. 

Attendees learned the warning signs of stroke, strategies to prevent them, and actions to take if they believe someone they know is having one.

Kiefer Necklen said that strokes can happen to people of any age, including children. They are the fifth-leading cause of death in the United States and a leading cause of disability. 

However, Kiefer Necklen noted that 80 percent of strokes are preventable with lifestyle changes.

Audrey Cohen of Bayonne said she learned a lot at the seminar.

“It was very helpful. It let you know about symptoms and not to be afraid to call 9-1-1 if something’s not right,” Cohen said. “The faster you act, the less trouble you’ll have. It’s better to be safe than sorry.”
