I, the caregiver wife read so much on whats out there to help in his reading, writing, etc but for the life of me cannot get him to do any of those things. Drs. just give more anti depresents when I mention this! I am going to enroll him in speech at a local Wis Univ. as soon as he can get in. When I discuss this w/him I get a very strong “No.” He just cannot understand what I want to do to help, nor does he understand what he needs to get well. he cannot read, write or talk beyond yes/no. Do I just keep doing what Im doing and hope he will somehow go along w/it? its been a year post/stroke and hes mobile! And very good w/regular home routine stuff.

I’m hoping you can get him to go to the Wisconsin evaluation, even it’s the last thing he does. Although he may already have been around other men with aphasia and/or aphasia groups there’s always the chance that this time it’ll “take.” I love aphasia groups, especially a group of men. They can sometimes get a guy motivated where all the “nagging” from wives and speech pathologists can’t budge a guy.
