Aphasia/Stroke Support Group

Life changes suddenly after a stroke, illness, or neurological injury. 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 Aphasia/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. The group is an informal meeting to share with, learn from and support one another.  Recovering from Stroke and other neurological insults is a lifelong journey that requires patience, resilience and lots of practice. You don’t have to go through it alone.
This group has been placed on hold until further notice. Thank you for your understanding.
For more information, call The Speech & Hearing Center and ask to speak with the manager – 413.534.2508
