My husband just uses a regular cell phone, because he can say enough words to get his messages across to whoever he his calling—mainly me and his sons and friends. I do the calling for makiing appointments, etc.

I would called a meeting of all your brothers and sisters and explain what you just typed. This should be a family decision, not just put on one sibling.

Karrina,

We do not send out information, but you can read out web site: http://www.aphasiahope.org and print out anything from our site. We feel that this is the best way to meet specific needs of the Survivors.

Thank you for making the packets.

Diane,

How long has it been since your husband had his stroke? It also depends on how survere hisw stroke was which will determine how long it takes to begin thinking and acting like he did before the stroke. Also some new characteristic may not go away. It took my husband from 6 to 12 months to begin to think clearly and he still cries more easily about unusual topics!

You would need to ask your doctor what to expect knowing the kind of stroke and also how long it has been.

Most things just take time…Treat him like you would have before his stroke…expect him to get better each day.

Re: This is such a great website and we need to hear from more Aphsia caregivers!!!

One of my suggestions is to take the time to click on our Resource section and read the section, “Experiences”. I would hope that these stories of real people—both Caregivers and Survivors—-might give you the encouragement to go Forward each day.
Also if you can find an Aphasia or Stroke group in your area, I know being able to talk to others will help.
You can do it and your husband WILL become a person you can love again—he will be different in many areas, but because of his aphasia he will become more empathic and understanding than he was before his stroke
