About the group
This group aims to provide support for those that communicate with Persons With Aphasia (PWA) or are a friend or loved one of a stroke survivor.
Many look at aphasia in a few different ways 1)
We can see it as a communication problem that belongs to the person with the stroke or brain injury, OR 2) We can see it as a problem with communication between two people. When the communication breaks down between two people, there are many daily factors that may be affected. This group will aim to address those factors, look for ways to support communication and look for ways to support life of those that are involved with a stroke survivor.
Potential Topics: Communication, Finances, Choosing and Prioritizing, Self Care in seconds, Intimacy
