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.
Only people who have been diagnosed with Aphasia can participate in this study. However, people who are less than one year post stroke will not be able to participate.
For participants to fully understand the information sheet and consent form they need to have a good level of English so anyone who this does not apply to will also be excluded.
Anyone with other pre diagnosed neurological disorders such as dementia will also be unable to participate in this study.
Finally, as this research involves having an interview over zoom anyone who does not have access to the internet and a computer will also be unable to participate.
