A monthly aphasia support group is offered at MidHudson Regional Hospital, a member of the Westchester Medical Center Health Network (WMCHealth). HealthAlliance patients and the Ulster County community are welcome to participate in this monthly group.

Aphasia is a language disorder that affects a person's ability to communicate and is most often caused by a stroke that occurs in areas of the brain that control speech and language.

Whether you’ve been living with aphasia for years or recently diagnosed, the monthly support group strives to bring people facing similar difficulties together in a positive, relaxed atmosphere aimed at fostering better communication through fun, education and practice.

The Aphasia Support Group is held on the fourth Tuesday of each month from 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. in the Atrium, First Floor Cafe Conference Room at MidHudson Regional Hospital. Each session is facilitated by a licensed and ASHA-Certified speech-language pathologist. Participants are encouraged to bring a friend or family member along for support.

The group is free and open to the public. To register, please call 845.431.8800.
