There are mental and physical conditions which can cause a person to have trouble speaking clearly or at all. Some of these conditions are smaller issues that can be corrected with training, such as learning to swallow correctly. But for people who have cognitive decline or communication issues, they’ll need to do a lot more work to overcome those obstacles in their lives.
Speech therapy has the power to change someone’s life for the better. If you or a loved one has speaking difficulties for whatever reason, then our speech therapy services can help you overcome them.
Here are some of the ways in which speech disorders can interfere with your life:
- Trouble having conversations with friends and family members
- Difficulty eating, drinking and swallowing in general
- Difficulty finding and holding a job
- Susceptible to bullying from peers
- Loneliness and depression
No one should have to suffer like this. The good news is that speaking disorders are treatable with the right kind of therapy. A speech therapist can work with the patient and train them to speak and swallow correctly. If the patient continues to work with the speech therapist and never gives up trying, it can change their life forever.
Professional Speech Therapists in Broward
Health Care of South Florida is a home health care agency in Broward that offers speech therapy services in addition to normal nursing and home aide services. Most home care agencies in Broward County do not offer speech therapy services, especially 24/7 like we do. You can call us at any hour of the day or night to request our speech therapy services and we’ll come to your home as soon as possible.
When our speech therapists start working with patients for the first time, we conduct an evaluation of their current speaking and swallowing abilities. We factor in past physical, emotional and mental health issues too. After a thorough evaluation has been performed, a comprehensive speech therapy plan will be created for the individual patient.
Some of the common speech therapy treatments provided include:
- Aural rehabilitation
- Dysphagia treatment
- Language disorder treatment
- Voice disorder treatment
- Other cognitive decline treatments
Speech therapy exercises usually revolve around the practice of problem solving, memory, and swallowing. When someone develops a speech problem, whether they were born with it or developed it later in life, it can typically be treated with brain exercises like these.
Sometimes the brain needs a good workout to think and remember words better. If someone can remember their words better, they can speak their words better. That is the idea. The less time someone has to devote to thinking about the words they’re going to say, the easier it will be to say them.
Convenient In-Home Speech Therapy Services
People in need of speech therapy are often embarrassed to speak in public. It can even be a hassle for them to go to a facility and seek therapy because of this embarrassment. That is why we offer in-home speech therapy services, where the patient doesn’t even need to leave their home to get treatment.
Health Care of South Florida can offer 24/7 speech therapy services to anyone in Miami or Broward County. Just contact us to let us know which time is convenient for you and we will send a qualified speech therapist over to your home at that time.
Our speech therapists have gone through extensive schooling and training to become professionals in their respective field. You or your loved one will be well taken care of by our speech therapists.
