BACKGROUND/HISTORY

When Established: 11/1996

NASAM (National Stroke Association of Malaysia or Persatuan Kebangsaan Angin Ahmar Malaysia) is a non-profit organisation founded six years ago in November 1996 by Janet Yeo to help Stroke survivors cope with the trauma of stroke and to provide rehabilitation facilities to help them return to a normal life as quickly as possible.

NASAM’s Mission

To educate the public on stroke prevention.

NASAM’s Activities
Group therapy sessions are conducted from 10.00am – 12.00 pm and from 2.00 – 4.00pm Monday to Friday at NASAM House, Petaling Jaya.
We provide physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy. These sessions are conducted by trained therapists assisted by volunteers.
Excursions and trips to various places of interest are also organised regularly for our stroke members. Please call the other centres for their opening hours.

Fees
Registration fees for stroke survivors are RM200 which includes a one-time membership fee of RM50, a thorough assessment by our therapist and the first month therapy fees. The fee forsubsequent months is only RM100 a month in NASAM, Petaling Jaya and Ampang and RM50 at the other centres.  If you wish to be a friend of NASAM, non-stroke members need only pay RM50 to join. There is no monthly fees.  As a member you will be sent a copy of our quarterly magazine Stroke News and will be invited to all our events.
