Stewart Kitching – Swale Stroke Support
Written by Sheppey FM on 29/01/2018
Stewart Kitching from ‘Swale Stroke Support’ was talking about Post – Stroke Communication with Mari & Keith . He described how his verbal and written skills were almost erased, and the tips therapists taught him to aid recovery, the importance of eye contact and how to minimise issues when others become impatient and start to speak for him. Stewart still requires the use of pen & paper to express numbers as he has not regained the ability to understand them when spoken. If you, or someone you know has suffered a stroke and would like help or advice then contact Stewart at the Swale Stroke Support Group.
