Talking About Transitions – Aphasia Institute

Talking About Transitions

$10.00$20.00

Clear

From our Talking About series (originally Working Together To Help You Where You Live), this pictographic resource is designed to facilitate a conversational partnership between health care practitioners and people with aphasia. It is also ideal for people with limited English language skills. It is based on the techniques of Supported Conversation for Adults with Aphasia™ (SCA™), developed by the Aphasia Institute.

We have included two resources in this package:

 

Discharge Planning

Going Home

The Discharge Planning resource contains the following topics:

Determining the need for assistance

  • Identifying the right type of accommodation
  • Discussing location, finances,  supports, and feelings

The Going Home resource contains the following topics:

Leaving the hospital

  • Scheduling outpatient tests and follow-up
  • Discussing in-home supports

NOTE: Resource content is gathered by consulting experts on this topic. To the best of our knowledge, this information is accurate. Although we are not experts on this topic, we are experts in how to communicate information to people who know more than they can say (i.e. people with aphasia or other communication challenges).

"I’ve been working at the Aphasia Institute since early 2007 and I love my job. It's incredibly rewarding to work in a collaborative environment where I get to be part of life-changing work for people living with aphasia and the healthcare providers who serve them. I feel affirmed, encouraged and supported as we work together on innovative and dynamic initiatives that accomplish our mission and vision in new, creative and resourceful ways."
