Although difficult communicating with a Care recipient (cr) with aphasia is possible some caregivers seem to think that along with the language skills crs with aphasia lose cognitive skills too and they don’t put an effort in to communicate because they think there’s no one in there to help encourage the cr to communicate and allow him to express himself here are a few techniques that are recommended for seniors with aphasia

Try: Make sure the cr always has a way to communicate and make his own decisions; ask yes or no questions or write down potential answers always speak to your loved one in a direct and natural way – never assume that they can’t understand or that there’s no one in there speak clearly to improve understanding use expressive body language draw pictures or write down key words seek help from professionals in conversation techniques for crs with expressive aphasia and talk to a doctor about additional therapy options to help improve a cr’s communication skills without language
