Aphasia Centre of Ottawa provides care aimed at enhancing the quality
of life of people affected by aphasia by helping them improve their
ability to communicate with others and regain their self-confidence. Aphasia Centre of Ottawa is a unique non-profit, community-based organization
that relies on donations and fees to provide these much-needed services.
Two speech-language pathologists, a communicative disorder assistant,
and two social workers, in partnership with trained volunteers, provide
programs to help people with aphasia and their families cope with the
daily challenges of living with this long-term disability. Together,
staff and volunteers focus on building a supportive environment where
people with aphasia feel comfortable and valued. The primary goal is to facilitate renewed participation in social activities and encourage people to overcome the
isolation that often results from aphasia by helping them re-establish social contacts.
