Picture book concept helps with patient communication
David Nicholson and his carer Tina recently shared a wonderful communication aid Tina developed to help David describe what he wants when his voice is not working so well: Tina made a picture book to illustrate certain facets of everyday life for David to respond to. There are pages with different articles of clothing so he can choose what he wants to wear, which activity he wishes to pursue, what he wants to eat and other options for them to do. Easy and clever!
Ginger Irvine was pleased to meet David and Tina while David was in London for an appointment to catch up on his news. Thank you Tina and David for sharing your news and your picture book idea, which will certainly help others in the NA patient community.
