Our Mission:
Reconnecting people with aphasia and their family caregivers to active lives.

Aphasia robs stroke and brain injury survivors of their ability to communicate.

Aphasia cuts people off from their family, friends, healthcare providers, and everyday life.

The Adler Aphasia Center at JCC MetroWest provides a therapeutic environment of innovative programs that help people with aphasia and their families reconnect with life.

Long term rehabilitation is possible.

Our research shows people with aphasia benefit in many ways:

  • Improved communication skills
  • Increased confidence
  • Strengthened social connections
  • Enhanced quality of life

How do we help people with aphasia?

Through life skills activities, the arts, literature, technology and fitness, our programs help our members:

  • Improve communication skills
  • Exercise cognitive skills
  • Build self-esteem
  • Make social connections

How do we help family caregivers?

The family caregiver support group is facilitated by our life coach and focuses on mutual support and encouragement while building strategies to cope with the challenges of aphasia.

Who is on our staff?

  • Licensed speech-language pathologists
  • Trained professionals
  • Committed volunteers
