In-home speech therapy makes a tremendous difference in someone’s quality of life. It’s great for patients suffering from severe cognitive decline, difficulty swallowing, and other afflictions. Speech therapy also helps patients who can no longer pronounce words or struggle to form complete sentences.
The Many Benefits of In-Home Speech Therapy
Speech therapy can address many lifestyle difficulties that cause confusion and frustration for seniors and disabled individuals.
Help with Swallowing Problems
This is a common problem we encounter at Care Connections. There are, however, numerous ways to improve it through different motor exercises, dietary changes, postural adjustments, and electrical stimulation (i.e., VitalStim).
Cognitive Speech Therapy
Memory loss is a painful and frustrating contributor to speech deficiency. Therapists often address it with mental exercises and other means of reinvigorating the cognitive faculties.
Using Technology for Alternative Communication Options
Newer communication media allow us to lessen the burden of speech difficulty. We can use computers, smartphones, and even simple pictures to retrain and improve communication.
Other General Language Services
Many patients simply need a friendly guide or tutor to help with reading, writing, and other tasks. This includes strategies for sentence formulation, word-finding, and comprehension.
The best part is that we do this all within the comfort of a patient’s home. That eliminates all the potential disruptions to their daily routine. Plus, it keeps them in a comfortable and familiar environment, which helps offset anxiety.
