In light of COVID-19, Tele-visits are offered in place of home visits. Tele-visits are a phone call between a trained volunteer and a person with aphasia.

Tele-visits help address social isolation and renew self-esteem. *In some circumstances, members and volunteers may use a video conference platform when having these meetings such as Zoom, Facetime or Skype.

The Outreach Program provides support to individuals with Aphasia who may have barriers to attending programs at the Aphasia Institute in person. Home visits are offered from a trained volunteer.

"Volunteering at the Aphasia Institute gives me the privilege of seeing people with aphasia take back their lives after stroke. I know I'm making a difference by volunteering at AI every week."
