Speech Therapy

Speech Therapy (MCC)

Speech-language pathologists work with patients to assess and treat vocal and language impairment, which includes understanding spoken words, producing fluent speech, and choosing the correct words when speaking.

Speech therapists can also help patients who have difficulty in swallowing, communicating, and/or cognitive impairments. They may recommend exercises to improve muscle movement, positions, or techniques to help with swallowing and suggest specific foods and liquid textures that are easier and safer to swallow. They may also help patients remember the safety precautions, exercises, and new routines that the other therapists and nursing staff have added to your plan of care for a safe transition home.
