In-Home Speech Therapy
Personalized for Issues with Speech, Language, Cognition, & Swallowing.
Speech therapy at home can help improve essential skills such as swallowing, processing information, and communicating. If you or a loved one are having difficulty clearly articulating what you need— or are experiencing trouble swallowing— the risk of health emergencies rises dramatically. A Care Connection Home Health’s speech therapists are on-call and here to help.
Trusted & Skilled Speech-Language Pathology at Home
Speech therapy— also known as speech-language pathology— in a home setting can be more effective than traditional office visits.
Often, home health speech therapy clients are dealing with medical issues like stroke, dementia, cancer, or brain injuries. Others may have speech issues related to changes in the vocal cords and muscles that commonly happen with age.
Your speech-language pathologist will recommend appropriate treatment based on each client’s unique situation. You or your loved one will be in a comfortable, familiar setting, eliminate transportation worries, and the whole family can even be involved.
Therapists can help you recover after an injury, surgery, or manage an acute or chronic illness. You’ll also learn healthy lifestyle tips and exercises you can do to think, communicate, and eat or drink more effectively on your own.
Some speech impairments can improve quickly, while others may require long-term speech therapy. Contact A Care Connection today for a customized and complimentary speech-language therapy consultation, today.
Skilled Speech-Language Therapists can help in areas including:
Oral Motor & Breathing Exercises
Safe Swallowing Exercises
Dysarthria Therapy (e.g. MS, ALS, Parkinson's)
Brain, Throat, or Mouth Cancer Speech & Communication
What is home health Speech Therapy?
Speech therapy is the evaluation and treatment of communication disorders. A client’s challenges may include speaking, listening, or cognition. Speech therapists can also treat individuals who struggle with swallowing. If you’ve had a stroke, certain types of cancer, dementia, a brain injury, or neurological condition, speech therapists can help you with exercises to re-learn essential skills so you can stay independent at home.
Will Medicare help pay for Speech Therapy at home?
Medicare provides coverage against specific health-care services you need at home during the recovery period following a medical illness. Some of the home health-care it covers are physical and occupational therapy, part-time skilled nursing and health aide care, and speech-language pathology.
Is there a difference between "home care" and "home health care"?
The term “home care” refers to any type of care (medical or non-medical) that is provided for the client in their home. While home care can be used to describe both medical and non-medical care, typically “home care” should be seen as non-medical care such as companionship/homemaking services and personal care services, while “home healthcare” refers specifically to skilled nursing care and other care such as speech, physical or occupational therapy.
