Aphasia Re Connect
Every 11 minutes, three people in the UK have a stroke. About a third of these people will have Aphasia. This amounts to over 367,000 people in the UK, a figure that increases by 20,000 each year. There are more people living with Aphasia than MS and Parkinson’s disease combined.
Aphasia can affect the ability to read, write, speak or use numbers. It affects each person differently. It can affect anyone at any time and at any age. When aphasia strikes, it changes people’s lives in an instant. Aphasia can lead to isolation, the breakdown of relationships and, at times, depression and anxiety.
