Blog Feature: Redoable
Redoable is a survivor blog, written by Lafcadio De La Foret, a novelist, photographer, and former teacher of journalism and public relations. Lafcadio hails from the UK, doesn’t like milk in his tea, and writes about his experiences as a stroke survivor, focusing mostly on his aphasia.
His posts are both enjoyable and informative, especially his early entries recollecting his stay in the hospital. I recommend going through the archives of his blog, starting with the oldest posts and ending with present day. Not every stroke survivor remembers or can express their initial reactions to post-stroke life (aphasia obviously complicates this), so Lafcadio’s early entries are actually quite valuable to other survivors, caregivers, and the medical profession in general.
I suspect that if more direct-care workers (doctors, nurses, therapists, etc.) read survivor blogs, the quality of care for stroke and aphasiac patients would improve a great deal.
