Abstract

This study explored the changes in social roles following a stroke from the perspective of three people living with moderate-severe, chronic aphasia. The researchers conducted semi-structured interviews with two family members/friends of the people with aphasia. Next, the researchers transcribed the interviews and analyzed them for emergent themes. The researchers used these themes to develop questions and conduct semi-structured interviews with the participants with aphasia—using augmented communication strategies as necessary—to validate, or negate the findings. Although results confirm that a change in social roles is present, some discrepancies exist between family/friends and the people with aphasia.
