Library helps us

PUBLISHED: 07:00 09 May 2014

We all wish to express our gratitude to the staff at Exmouth Library who allow us to use the library for our Stroke Survivors Club meetings.

We also wish to thank them for photocopying aphasia-friendly documents to assist their recovery.

Aphasia is a stroke in the part of the brain that affects speech and thought. Sufferers need a quiet place where they are not disturbed or embarrassed by their ‘temporary’ speech impediment.

It is not always possible for somebody with this problem to get the right words out first time, and learning to talk again is a slow 

Several club members have improved greatly in the past few months and our congratulations go out to them.

We would also like to give our thanks to Exmouth shop staff, our bus drivers and you all who wait patiently for us with aphasia to get our requests correctly understood.

We would finally like to thank the staff at the Exmouth Journal for their help in making this club a success by advertising and printing articles which have been sent in.

Thank you EVERYBODY for your paitence and understanding.
