The Aphasia Center of West Texas not only offers support for people with aphasia once traditional therapy ends, it gives them back their life. The lonliness disappears when they enter the doors of the center and are greeted by a loving, caring staff and various volunteers who enhance their daily lives. This is where they make new friends, where they begin to feel comfortable in their "new skin" and can be themselves without fear of being misunderstood or ignored. I have been a volunteer at the aphasia center for over three years and have seen several members blossom and settle in where they once were shy and a bit introverted about joining in to conversation with others. It has been a blessing and inspiration in my life and I look forward every week to the time I spend with my friends at the Aphasia Center of West Texas.
