Finding Resources in Your Community

COMPASS Study Community Resource Directory

Instructions and Getting Started:

INSTRUCTIONS: Use the table below to search for your local community resources. We recommend making multiple searches.  For example, when you search for a resource, enter a city name.  If you are close to another city, clear out your first search and then search surrounding cities.  You can also make multiple searches by looking up your zip code and surrounding zip codes surrounding you.

IMPORTANT RESOURCES:  In addition to the resources you find in the table below, we wanted to highlight a few resources that will serve patients from all over over the state of North Carolina.  You may want to check these out first:


Community Resources

Directory Purpose and Overview

Optimal secondary prevention and recovery requires integration of medical and social services to manage stroke as a chronic condition and to sustain health.  In addition there are many social factors that influence recovery and management. Some of these social factors include lack of resources to purchase medicines, lack of transportation, inability to prepare foodOften communities are rich in resources to help patients managed, but these resources are often not known or accessed by patients, caregivers, or providers to support self-management and recovery.

COMPASS connects patients and caregivers to community resources primarily through the use of the Community Resources Directory. The purpose of the Community Resources Directory is to support the Advance Practice Practitioner (APP), Post-Acute Care Coordinator (PAC), stroke survivors and their caregivers in finding resources within the community that will help the survivor achieve their goals of care.

The directory primarily includes support groups, behavioral health services, pharmacy services, North Carolina Area Agencies on Aging services, fall prevention programs, chronic disease management and prevention programs, and community exercise programs. Special attention is also given to resources that provide services to those under 60, the uninsured with no ability to pay, patients living in rural areas, patients with cognitive deficits and those with limited access to transportation.
