New here, but not new to aphasia
Hi! My husband has Alzheimer’s and perhaps the hardest part to deal with at this point is his aphasia-he uses the word “thing”constantly and I rarely can figure out what he’s even talking about. The word comes up about 15 times in a conversation with no contextual clues. He also twirls his hands as if that might help me to understand. By the end of the day, I’m totally worn out and frustrated. My dad just died in February, 5 1/2 years after a debilitating stroke, which left him with frontal temporal dementia and severe aphasia.
