Being a caregiver is a marathon. It's frustrating and stressful. One day the one you love becomes someone very different; they have new personality and new physical challenges. One of the most important parts of a relationship is suddenly cut off - the ability to fully communicate.
Listen is as Michele Hart-Henry, Vice President of Innovation, Sales and Marketing at Lingraphica, chats with Dr. Audrey Holland about the importance, challenges, victories, frustrations, and heroism of caregivers for those with aphasia.
Listen in as Lingraphica’s Chief Scientist Dr. Richard Steel interviews Dr. Audrey Holland.
Dr. Holland is well known for her Life Participation Approach to Aphasia, which places priority on the life concerns of those affected by aphasia and assists them in their efforts to return to active life. You’ll learn the primary benefits to people with aphasia who join the programs that embrace the LPAA.
Make sure you listen until near the end to hear the important discussion of how technology is benefitting those with aphasia. One example is international Skype groups. Another is the study which Dr. Steele and Lingraphica conducted with the SCALE Center in Baltimore.

LOTL The Comfort Zone Welcomes Lindsey Webster, debuts new CD " You Change "
NEW YORK (June 17, 2015) Do you remember that moment when you first heard Anita Baker or Sade; the effortless, sultry, and soaring vocal that captures all of your attention? Lindsey Webster’s delicate and powerful voice takes you to that place - an unabashed nod to the greats and yet 100 percent Lindsey. The Soul Songstress is proud to announce the release of her sophomore album, You Change, via Atlanta Records on July 17. The album is an eloquent collection of work showcasing Webster’s expressive vocals and uncanny talent and the two lead singles “Fool Me Once” and “Open Up” are out now and available to stream HERE. “"You Change” shows the growth we’ve made as artists since our first album; in both our songwriting and who we are as artists. From a delicate song like “Bleed”, a song about utter heartbreak, to an anthem like “I’m Strong”, we explore many facets of our songwriting and are extremely happy with the result”, states Webster.
In 2009, Lindsey met her partner, Keith Slattery, and started performing professionally. Together, with a band of world-class musicians, they’ve performed over 600 shows in venues including Bearsville Theater, Levon Helm Studios, Helsinki Hudson, Daryl’s House, The Falcon, The Lambs Club, Rockwood Music Hall, The Red Lion, and Groove.
The success of her first album and winning “Best Acoustic Song” in the Independent Music Awards caught the eye of Brian Hurst from UK’s soulandjazz.com. Hurst brought Webster to Atlanta Records, who signed her to release her second album, You Change.

Coach Cafe' Radio is thrilled to welcomes Lee Gant for our next Enlightened Conversation!
In her inspiring book, Love in Every Stitch: Stories of Knitting and Healing, master knitter, teacher, and widely published knitwear designer Lee Gant shares real-life stories about the power of knitting.
The stories Lee shares about herself and fellow knitters from around the world illustrate how each stitch and purl can comfort and calm, heal and renew. A suicidal teenager crochets through pregnancy. A dying woman finds comfort in the company of knitters. A woman finds the courage to face her estranged parents. A woman going blind realizes she can still knit — and experience life. And Lee’s life, riddled with more than just anxiety, has at last become stable and productive. This book includes stories of women, men, and teens who have experienced profound change and enlightenment through knitting and crochet.
Here's what people are saying about Love in Every Stitch- "Lee Gant brings us stories from the edge of suffering, marked by addiction, violence and grief. Why venture into this terrain? On the other side we experience the tangible feel of yarn, hands moving with knitting needles and the comfort of a shared passion. Love in Every Stitch: Stories of Knitting and Healing demonstrates Gant's deep love for the craft of knitting, how knitting offered a healing balm in her recovery, as well as helping countless others. As someone who believes in the potency of the arts, Gant offers another view through her testimony to knitting's therapeutic powers, so simple yet profound."
—Adriana Marchione, expressive arts therapist and teacher, creator of When the Fall Comes, a film on love, loss and art.
