Speech therapists work to, assess, diagnose, prevent and treat speech, social communication, language, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders in our patients. The main goal of our speech therapists is to improve communication in our patients.  

Speech therapy for seniors is often necessary when recovering from the debilitating consequences of a stroke or dementia.  It may also be necessary after a head injury. If a senior cannot successfully describe what they need, where they hurt, or what is wrong in general, an emergency situation can easily occur.

Some of the goals of speech therapy might include:

  • Resolve problems requesting items and responding to questions.
  • Easy the difficulty managing their own financial, personal or medical matters.
  • Shows alternative ways to avoid injury or potentially dangerous situations.
