Speech Therapy For The Elderly

Speech Therapy for the Elderly at Westwood Inn

At Westwood Inn, we understand the complexities that come with aging, including the difficulties some may face with speech and swallowing. To address these challenges head-on, we’ve established a robust speech therapy program tailored for the elderly. This program is meticulously designed to support residents facing speech, language, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders, with the ultimate goal of enhancing their quality of life.

Customized Therapy Plans and Expert Care

At the core of our speech therapy services are the individualized therapy plans crafted for each resident after a thorough evaluation by our expert speech-language pathologists. These plans are customized to address the specific needs of each person, be it improving speech clarity, managing conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, or overcoming swallowing difficulties. Our commitment lies in applying the most current, evidence-backed methods to ensure our residents achieve optimal results.

Enhancing Communication and Cognitive Abilities

Our speech therapy program focuses on bolstering the communication skills of our residents. We work on enhancing verbal expression, processing language, and introducing alternative ways of communication for those facing more severe challenges. Moreover, our program includes strategies aimed at improving cognitive-communication abilities, which play a critical role in everyday tasks. For residents with difficulties in swallowing, we offer specialized exercises and dietary advice to promote safe eating and drinking practices.

Innovative Technological Support and Engaging Families

Incorporating cutting-edge technology, we support residents with significant communication barriers, ensuring they can connect with others effectively. Recognizing the vital role of a supportive network, we engage families throughout the therapy journey, providing them with the knowledge and tools needed to support their loved ones effectively. Continuous evaluations of therapy plans ensure they remain aligned with the resident’s evolving needs and progress.
