Advanced Home Health’s care plan is comprehensive, and therefore it includes speech therapy – helping the patient restore his/her ability to communicate effectively. The patient may have articulation, fluency, or voice disorders that hinder them from effectively communicating with their peers and loved ones. For example, Apraxia is a motor speech disorder where the line between the brain and the mouth is disrupted. This may happen after a serious injury to the head.
Our therapist will engage the patient and lead him/her on a path of language development in articulation and/or intervention activities.
Dysphagia is a swallowing disorder that occurs in patients suffering from a trauma or a recent hospitalization. This swallowing disorder comes in 3 different types: oral, pharyngeal, and esophageal. The speech therapist is equipped to evaluate and treat such dysfunctions and restore the patient’s vital ability to eat.
