Speech Language Pathology or Speech Therapy is a therapy practice that improves your communication skills and swallowing abilities. Many people don’t know a major component of a speech therapist’s job is helping people swallow again. Sometimes after a stroke or a brain injury people lose the ability to eat, swallow or read and write. We have full-time and in-house speech language pathologists at Bethany Senior Living.
The benefits of speech therapy is improvement in communication skills, swallowing abilities, reading and writing abilities, and cognitive ability. Many experience communication problems after a stroke, brain injury, Alzheimer’s disease, or from other medical conditions. Therapists work to identify the problem and provide treatment that will enhance the patients ability to communicate and make safe decisions.
Our in-house therapy team provides a stable, day to day therapist to patient relationship for occupational, physical and speech therapy.
