About

We are looking for people who would be willing to meet approximately once a week with a person with aphasia. Your role as a communication partner would be to assist people with aphasia to engage in social activities and help showcase their strengths.

The idea behind this program is that these will turn into long-term, meaningful relationships. We are looking for people who have a long term interest in assisting people with communication difficulties. Reimbursement for costs associated with activities is possible.

There is no set location for this opportunity. Once matched with a participant, the time and place of meeting every week can be arranged by the volunteer and participant!
