Speech Therapy in Tulare County
Many stroke patients, or those who have suffered a severe accident, require
the help of a speech therapist. Kaweah Delta Home Health speech therapists
are fully licensed and experienced in helping a wide range of patients
with all degrees of speech receptive and expressive issues.
The sudden loss of such basic cognitive and motor speech abilities can
be extremely frustrating to a patient, and the road back is often a long
and difficult one. At Kaweah Delta Home Health, our speech therapists
have a unique understanding of what our patients are going through. Our
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.
Our patients’ families and caregivers participation in the speech
therapy process is crucial to a positive outcome. That’s why our
speech therapists work closely with them in order to optimize the effectiveness
of the therapy so exercises and training can be continued within the home
between therapy sessions.
