Living Your Best Life Education and Support Program during COVID-19

During the pandemic, our on-site programs are temporarily closed, and the Living Your Best Life is being offered on-line. People with PPA and their family will be invited to participated in the programs from the comfort of their own homes, through Zoom.

Programs for People Living with PPA

Our Community Aphasia Program (CAP) offers a range of recreational, leisure and educational programs which are communicatively accessible. Where appropriate, individuals with PPA are encouraged to participate in our CAP to connect with others who have aphasia.

"Volunteering at the Aphasia Institute has been an amazing experience. It’s such a great feeling to help someone express themselves, or help someone understand another’s message. It can be challenging sometimes, but that just makes the moment a connection goes through that much more special. More than anything, I really appreciate the strong sense of community that the Aphasia Institute creates and being a part of that community."
