Through conversation, activities, the arts, technology and education, our programs help our members:
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.
Our caregiver support group meets weekly at JCC MetroWest on Thursdays from 12:30-1:30pm.

By participating in the Adler Aphasia Center’s Life Skills program, our members with aphasia are able to learn more effective communication strategies- building their language skills and their confidence to return to an active life in the community.
We welcome people of all ages who have been diagnosed with aphasia. If you cannot participate independently, you must be accompanied by a caregiver. Call us to set up a tour where you will learn more about our Center and how it will help in your recovery.
