Speech Therapy

The role of the Speech Therapist is to improve functional communication and cognitive skills of all of our residents. They also monitor and modify swallowing techniques and introduce diet modifications and special feeding techniques when necessary for Residents who have decreased abilities in these areas.

Speech therapy involves
  • Developing an effective plan of care to reach maximum level of function.
  • Utilize appropriate evaluation tools and accurately complete evaluations in swallowing and cognition.
  • Set up appropriate diet for each Resident with the lowest risk of choking or aspiration pneumonia.
  • Determine each Residents’ level of safety at home.
