The BMC Aphasia Support Group meets on the third Tuesday of each month, year round on the 5th floor of the Medical Arts Complex. This is in the Outpatient Rehabilitation department. Meetings are from 3:00 pm until 4:30 pm. There is no charge for attendance.
Aphasia is a communication impairment that results from a stroke or other source of damage to the brain. People who experience aphasia might have difficulty speaking, understanding, reading, or writing. The Aphasia Support Group is for people with aphasia and their family members/friends/caregivers. These meetings provide opportunities for participants to practice communication, to develop greater understanding of their disability, and to learn from others who share similar experiences.
