back is often a long and difficult one. At Kaweah Delta Home Health, our speech

speech therapists are not only highly trained, they are patient and
compassionate as well. By using specific speech exercises and memory training,
our goal is to help our patients communicate with their loved ones once again.

within the home between therapy sessions.
