Nick’s Story

“I’ve had Aphasia since I had a stroke in 2017, 10 days before Christmas. I had a stroke team come in for over three months, and they put me in touch with the aphasia team. Now 3 years later, I still have trouble speaking but I am still alive.

All my family try to make me feel like I’m ok, but I still struggling to keep my sentences short. Only my youngest son and my daughter-in-law gives me time to finish my sentence, my daughter-in-law was a carer so she understands that I need time to finish.”
