Hearing from Emma

“Caring for someone who has aphasia can be very difficult at times.

James is my brother and he has aphasia after a brain injury when he was just 14 years old. I have had to learn to not only look after him but to be able to understand him. James has many ways in which he communicates with me but sometimes it’s hard to understand what he’s trying to say, but that’s ok!

We usually get there in the end. Anyone can adapt to change, and that’s exactly what we did. Also, we are still learning!”
