Our speech therapists, formally known as speech-language pathologists, focus on treating speech, language and swallowing disorders. Elders may experience these difficulties for many reasons.
These communication disorders could result from accidents or illnesses and diseases, such as a stroke, brain injury, oral or laryngeal cancer, Huntington’s Disease, Dementia or Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). We offer skilled clinical services through evaluation and treatment of a variety of communication problems.
By visiting you in your home and completing a comprehensive evaluation, we work with you, your family members and caregivers to provide strategies to maintain functional communication. Our evaluation entails assessing your speech, language, swallowing and possible cognitive impairment. Then, we create an exercise, education and training plan on the best strategies to improve these disorders.
At Northern Light, we feel that it is an honor to go into your home and be a part of the team working with you to increase your quality of life. We are proud to provide you the same quality care that you would receive in an outpatient clinic, in your very own home.
By being at home, you have the opportunity to become more functional as you can work toward your goals in the environment you will be performing tasks. We see great motivation and then success in our patients simply because they want to be at home.
