Speech Therapy

Can you or your loved one benefit from speech therapy?

A speech therapist’s (or speech language pathologist’s) role is to provide treatment to help increase a person’s communication ability in writing, reading, speaking, and listening. Communication function is always affected when an individual has memory and other cognitive deficits, such as Dementia.  Our speech therapist will create an individualized plan of care for each patient. A critical part of treatment is also caregiver training and family counseling in order to promote positive communicative interactions and increase success with daily living activities (such as meals, getting dressed, social outings, etc).
