Aphasia is a communication disorder that happens when one or more parts of the brain that controls language are damaged. This condition can interfere with both a person’s verbal and written communication.
It can also affect a person’s ability to read, write, speak, listen, and understand speech.
At Kalibra Home Care, we’ve had experience providing Home Care in Richardson, Texas to patients who’ve been diagnosed with various types of aphasia (fluent, non-fluent, conduction, and global).
This National Aphasia Awareness Month let’s help spread awareness by talking about the causes, symptoms, and risk factors of aphasia.
Damage to one or more parts of the brain that controls language can cause aphasia. Some conditions that can cause brain damage are:
- a brain tumor
- an infection
- dementia or another neurological disorder
- a degenerative disease
- a head injury
- a stroke
Aphasia symptoms can range from mild to severe — depending on where the damage in the brain occurs and the size of that damage.
Aphasia affects people of all ages. However, since stroke is the most common cause of the condition, most people who get aphasia are middle-aged or older.
We can provide your loved one with the Senior Home Care in Frisco, Texas that they need to overcome this condition and regain their abilities.
