Participants’ comments on Sat 18/5

Aananda - stroke survivor
“Today’s program was done very well as the excercises helped us get our brains to be fired up so we were able to think more clearly when we started our discussions with the volunteers. I like the 4 questions that were asked of us as it made us think what’s important to us and what we should not worry about as it was a warm and relaxing 2 hour session. The singing was very enjoyable and would like to thank the organisers 👏”

Mrs Wong - stroke caregiver
“Today’s SNSA More than Words event was really enjoyable for all the stroke survivors n caregivers Everyone was so amused and enjoyed the physical movements n speech therapy all at the same time with lovely music in the background Thanks to Poh Choo of SNSA and all the volunteers 👏👏👏”

Frank - stroke survivor
“Thanks!.. Poh Choo and Volunteers
Without you all there would not be a SNSA stroke survivors club
Its activities certainly keep us all moving together forward
Three cheers to SNSA”

Linda, stroke caregiver
“The 1st More Than Words was enlightening n well intent. It focussed on meaningful n relevant activities to motivate encourage stroke patients with aphasia to speak up. Kudos to SNSA taking on this role n to Poh Choo n volunteers who were so passionate in interacting with the survivors . It was also fun. It was the 1st time noted Phillip was active n enjoying himself from beginning to end . Many thanks n much appreciated. Cheers Linda.”

Jackie, stroke survivor
“We had the first session of the new SNSA aphasia group called "More Than Words" at Singapore Pools building.
We had a speech therapist and physiotherapist starting us off with some vocal exercises to the sound of Shanghai Jazz. It was a fun and innovative way to get our speech muscles working!
We then had a sharing session followed by karaoke, ending our fruitful session.”
