We know it’s not just the person with aphasia who needs support – caregivers need help and resources, too. The success of a person with aphasia depends on social support and social connections. So it is very important to provide information, resources and help to family members and others on whom the person with aphasia depends.
We’ve asked all of our family members about the best time to hold a caregiver program, and they’ve asked for their own session that runs concurrently to our “Living with Aphasia” program. The program will run on the 2nd Wednesday of every month from 10 am to 12 pm.
Mary Lee Zawadski is an accomplished counselor and life coach who has extensive experience with people with aphasia through our programs and workshops. We are thrilled that she will be facilitating our caregiver group sessions.
Some topics we will cover include: A Bill of Rights for Family Members, How to Handle Anger in a Person with Aphasia, and Questions about Depression.
2nd Wednesday of every month 10:00AM – 12:00PM
