Abstract

There is an increasing need in speech and language therapy for clinicians to understand and provide intervention in the context of the broader life quality issues for people with aphasia. Quality of life (QoL) with aphasia has been investigated quantitatively using different tools and explored health after stroke, psychological well-being, caregiver burden, life satisfaction, and overall disability. Qualitatively, there is almost no explicit QoL-focused research based on insiders’ perspective. Little is known about how people with aphasia interpret their QoL, and what contributes to and detracts from the quality in their current lives.
