Investigating the impact of physical exercise and social isolation on wellbeing outcomes for people with Aphasia

This research is investigating the possible impact that physical exercise and social isolation have on the wellbeing of people with Aphasia. These are areas that are ever more important during the COVID-19 pandemic as decreased exercise and increased social isolation are more prevalent than normal.

This is being researched with the hope of finding ways to improve quality of life and wellbeing for people who have Aphasia. There are a wide range of factors that may be able to improve the quality of life for people with aphasia and this research aims to increase this knowledge.
