Description

Aphasia is the term for language problems caused by brain damage, such as stroke or traumatic brain injury. Aphasia can make it difficult for people to express their thoughts in words, or to understand what others are saying.

Aphasia Ireland is a registered charity, formed with the sole aim of creating awareness and providing support for people with aphasia and those around them. We strive to empower people with Aphasia to overcome challenges and barriers that stand in the way of a normal happy life. We also wish to help their partners, close family members and carers to successfully support their loved ones living with aphasia. Aphasia Ireland has been set up to do this in the following ways:

 

  • To create awareness of what Aphasia actually is.

  • To establish a nationwide network of Support Groups where both sufferers and their carers can benefit from the experience and understanding others

  • To keep abreast of the latest developments in the management and treatment of Aphasia and pass that information on.
