    Good evening everyone! My name is Erick and I am a caregiver to my father. He had a serious stroke last year and due to that he develop aphasia. It has been been a journey since he speak both english and spanish. Thankful for Lingraphica and my father speech therapist for brining me into this community to learn more about aphasia and connect with others who are going threw similar path. Tambien hablo espanol.

    Hey Erick! I hope you and your dad are having a great weekend, and enjoying some sunshine! 🌞 I’m Meredith! It’s so awesome that your dad and you were able to connect with this great resource and community. I have been living with aphasia for 28 years now. But lately, I am experiencing more of a “caregiver-type” role, to people that I am close to, who have recently began their rehab journey. And man, it is a whole, ‘Nother ball game! So, I salute you for being so compassionate, involved, pro-active and helpful in your father’s care! 💜👍

    Maybe you could offer some tips for me about ensuring the quality of care & rehab for aging family members, who are (were), extremely independent, intelligent and stubborn??

    Happy Sunday!
