The Valley Hospital will host a free PrimeTime community health program, Aphasia – When Communication is Challenged on Wednesday, March 1 from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at The Dorothy B. Kraft Center, 15 Essex Road, Paramus.
Aphasia is a condition that restricts the ability to use and comprehend words. Often caused by a stroke, aphasia can also occur in individuals who have experienced a brain injury or a neurological disorder. While difficulties in communication can leave individuals living with aphasia feeling helpless and frustrated, there are a range of strategies available that can be used to strengthen communication and improve one’s quality of life. For family members, it is also helpful to learn what their loved one is going through and how to communicate with success. Join us to learn about how aphasia is caused and diagnosed, and helpful interventions to communicate more effectively.
