Our amazing “Life Jacket” is on the move to spread the word about aphasia!
It’s mission is to display the hidden difficulties of the communication condition on the outside.
First shown at our “Say without Words” exhibition on Exeter High Street and then at the Stroke Conference in Cornwall, it now stands proudly in the foyer of Budleigh Health and Wellbeing Hub. The “Life Jacket” was designed and made by our Creative Art Group (run by Magic Carpet).
We aim to keep the jacket on the move around Devon for 2020 so watch this space and #followthejacket!
Last year we did some aphasia awareness training with the professionals care staff at Blue Bird Care Agency. Many of their staff work with people who have aphasia or related communication difficulties.
They have since invited up to come along to meet their teams and talk more about aphasia with people from the Drop In.
In the next few months we will be going along to their Exmouth, Honiton and Exeter staff meetings to chat about aphasia and communication issues.
