Aphasia Caregiver Asks for Help

I got an email from a person two days ago that said her husband had a stroke 3 years ago.  He suffers from expressive aphasia and she is his primary caregiver.  She asked if I had any suggestions for help.  She needs help.  She is absolutely worn out and doesn't see an end in sight.

I thought of all my practiced speech pathologist answers.  I listed out a few resources for her and then I thought I might ask for your help.

If you have a moment, what suggestions would you give to someone who is the primary caregiver for an aphasic individual?

My hope is that your comments may help her and anyone else who may read them.

Thank you!
