Due to the pandemic we are all online for our support groups.
The Voices of Aphasia which takes place every Wednesday at 7pm. During these covid times, we are doing it on Skype. It is purely a conversational group. Different topics are discussed every week, which are notified the day before. It is very successful so far. It is catered for when the Service User is discharged from hospital and awaiting the community speech and language therapist to pick them up. However, it is open to everyone!
Aphasia Ireland is setting up a peer support group called Friends of Aphasia. It will be an ongoing monthly on Tuesdays at 7pm over zoom due to covid. It’s will start on the 7th December 2021. The support group is open to friends and family of people with aphasia. Its main purpose will be to provide support by offering hope as well as emotional and practical support. It’s aim will be to empower each other in the self-management of the challenges with aphasia and act as a recovery resource to each other.
Please get in contact with us at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information and to express an interest in either group!
