Imagine waking up one day and not being able to talk. You wouldn’t be able to share your feelings, wants, needs and have very limited communication with just about everyone. This happens every day – whether it’s from a tragic accident, injury, surgery or health condition. Our ability to speak can literally be taken away depending on the severity.
Speech therapy services provide a way to gain back function in the face, throat and mouth and retrain a person in how to chew, swallow and speak. The memory also plays a vital role in an individual’s recovery plan. These are all therapies that are ongoing after the physical injuries have healed.
Our trained staff develop treatment plans for each individual patient after an initial evaluation. The treatment program will vary depending on the stage of recovery but will always focus on increasing independents in everyday life.
