The Oxford Aphasia Group is a Stroke Association voluntary group that offers various activities to its members, including social support, games and quizzes, as well as outing and meals. The group also organises occasional talks by guest speakers.
Dementia is caused when the brain is damaged by disease or injury. This causes the structure of the brain to change, leading to the loss of some brain cells.
The group offers support for developing social and communication skills following a stroke. We organise a variety of fun activities and events.
The recovery of stroke survivors with language difficulties is famously variable. Some stroke survivors recover much more quickly or fully than others. Some respond to treatment much better than others.
Although speech and language therapists (SLTs) may help aphasia patients with their rehabilitation, there remains a clear lack of evidence-based treatments available for them to help their patients with problems of everyday talking, known as ‘discourse’. This study aims to address both the need for evidence-based treatments and improvement of clinical expertise to address discourse problems af
Aphasia Self-Help Groups are run by and for people with Aphasia - language-loss following stroke, head injury or other neurological condition.
At our meetings we support each other, share experiences, make new friends, rebuild self-confidence and develop new skills.
