Communication after a stroke
My grandma had a stroke about a year back. Since then she has not been able to speak or otherwise communicate with us. She makes some gestures and makes seemingly random noises. The stroke affected the left side of the brain and left her paralyzed on her right side.

Recently I did an experiment with her and gave her an inverted newspaper which she correctly oriented and looked at. After that she shifted her attention to something else. If you give her a newspaper the right side up, she looks at it without turning it. Does this indicate that she still has some language powers?

How can I communicate with her?
