My husband has locked in syndrome, communication is very difficult. Keith from Bromley Speech and Language came to see Geoff. He put himself completely in the frame for making sure Geoff's needs were met. He gave us exercises for Geoff's facial muscles and followed up with a meeting with St Cecilias nursing home's management to ensure the exercises were carried out.
Geoff has an Eyegaze computer. Keith contacted the technical team to see how this could be utilised in the best way for Geoff. The team came several times and have worked very hard to make this device easier for Geoff to use.
Keith gave a talk to management and cares about Geoff's right to speech by using the Etran board. He helped with a demonstration and followed up with another visit.
Keith has been invaluable to Geoff's progress and in helping the people who care for Geoff understand that Geoff can communicate given the tools he has.
Thank god for people that care.
