Aphasia means loosing abilities to communicate. Affected patient is forced to withdraw from family, social and professional life.
Aphasia’s cause despicable isolation. Unable to communicate, but with the intellect intact, patient is locked alone with his thoughts. Research say, that it has worst impact on life’s quality than symptoms of e.g. oncological or Alzheimer’s diseases.
Inability to communicate makes it impossible to come back to work or take part in a normal family life. It excludes young, otherwise able people from society and professional life. This creates huge costs for public health care system and social welfare.
There is no other solutions for this problem, which we could call satisfying. Standard therapy is a 45-minute session with a speech therapist, which in term of time is a drop in the ocean of needs. All over the world health care systems suffers from lack of therapists. But even if you are lucky enough to afford a private therapy it still is slow, not very affective, or not effective at all.
