Aphasia Support Group

Life changes suddenly after a stroke, illness, or neurological injury. Suddenly, individuals often have difficulty speaking, listening, reading or writing. As a result, individuals and their caregivers are faced with a new reality of not being able to communicate effectively during a critical time of care and need for adaptation. As part of the Holyoke Medical Center’s commitment to excellence in Stroke Care, the Speech & Hearing Center invites you to attend our weekly Stroke Support Group. Our group is designed to provide individuals with acquired communication difficulties such as aphasia, and their loved ones, a safe space to meet others experiencing similar challenges. A self-lead social half-hour starts the group. A Speech-Language Pathologist joins the group for the next hour of the meeting to facilitate discussion and education about recovering and adapting to the new normal. Group exercises are facilitated, helping to practice the strategies recently discussed. Recovering from Stoke and other neurological insults is a life long journey that requires patience, resilience and lots of practice. You don’t have to go through it alone.
We have changed the meeting time and now only meet on the 4th Thursday of the month.
10:30-11:00 social
11:00 – 12:00 Speech pathology led activities
Location: South 4 Conference Room
Contact: Speech and Hearing (413) 534-2508
