YAHTZEE

hey thanks to the comics and Rusty and everyone who made it out in the rain last night. It was not a huge turn out but it was INTIMATE and I did enjoy myself......Doctor Larry from Highland also came out which was very cool. For anyone who is going through something similar, what has seemed to work really well is varying home care workers to the extent possible and having on-call people (WHICH Steve still needs by the way); a day program to get therapy and socialization while living at home; and in Steve's case he cn benefit from the Aphasia Center in Oakland which has support groups for people with aphasia and also 1:1 speech therapy. The next step in his care plan will be to get him started with services there. He can do home speech exercies also, even just repeating numbers of the alphabet is good and fun too.
