New DCO Member – Voices of Hope for Aphasia

Voices of Hope for Aphasia, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that started in St. Petersburg, and is thrilled and proud to now be offering programs at the Hale Activity Center to benefit Dunedin
citizens and residents of the surrounding areas.
We are the only community-based aphasia program in West Central Florida, providing group-based programs for adults with communication disabilities due to stroke or other brain injury. People with communication disabilities typically experience social isolation, difficulty participating in conversations and other social activities, due to their disability. They may end up sitting at home, in front of the TV, isolated and lonely with the exception of their immediate family. Our programs are the remedy to this problem – we provide communication supports that empower and enable everyone to fully participate in conversation and activities that are accessible to all.

In addition to our main program, “Living with Aphasia”, we also offer a two-day family-focused workshop called “I have aphasia – now what?” This workshop is hosted by various health care facilities and organizations around the Greater Tampa Bay area. Finally, our 3rd program is an aphasia caregiver program on the 4th Saturday of every month from 10am – 12 pm, locations vary.
People who participate in our programs improve their confidence, their independence, and their ability to communicate in different ways. We are thrilled to be a new part of the Dunedin area.
