My friend, 45, mother of two (13 and 17), with a live-in boyfriend, had a stroke affecting her right side and speech. She is walking and going to therapy 4 days a week, but making very slow progress. Her story involves many problems including money, her boyfriend as a responsible partner, and generally frustrations surrounding her inability to communicate even simple ideas. She was a VERY chatty person before and is extremely sad for not having her ability to communicate. Circumstance collide to make it difficult to spend thousands of dollars on handheld electronic communication devices on the market.
I am looking for a set of communication cards that she can carry with her that has images and the written word, that will express many common daily nouns, verbs.... I think taking photos of what is personal to her is a great idea. I may be able to talk with her daughter and get that going. But for now I'm looking for something out of the box for an adult who needs to preserve her dignity. This is not primarily a means to teach, but may turn out helping that need.
Thanks for any response you may have.
