Mission and Philosophy
Our mission? To provide ongoing and personally meaningful programs within a supportive and peer-driven environment that is affordable for all stroke and brain trauma survivors, enabling them to achieve their maximum potential.
|Our approach:||a Life Participation Approach to Aphasia – LPAA SCC does everything it can to assist survivors and their families offering a path that allows them to re-engage in life. We do this with the Life Participation Approach to Aphasia: everyone affected by aphasia is entitled to service, at all stages of recovery, and success is measured by overcoming personal and environmental barriers. We believe that all survivors deserve a community that respects and supports them.|
|Our philosophy:||SCC stands for Stroke Comeback Center. It also stands for:|
|Support||We believe that strokes happen to the entire family. We offer support to the entire family through ongoing programs, our resource center and our day-to-day interactions.|
|Confidence||We have found that one of the primary advantages of joining our community is improved confidence: confidence in all aspects of recovery. Whether a goal is to return to work, take a walk, give a public presentation, tell a joke, or tell your friends and family that you love them, our classes and use of technology give survivors the confidence to meet their personal goals.|
|Community||All of our services are offered at the Center, a place for survivors and their families; a place where people with aphasia can communicate with peers who share their experiences and needs; a place that encourages self-sufficiency and independence; a home away from home.|
