The main goal of speech therapy is to help a patient regain communication skills. So, they can easily interact with the environment and express their needs and desires. The therapy also focuses on regaining the ability to eat and swallow without the help of other people. The advantage of the speech therapy is it can be performed at their home and every therapy is designed according to the patient’s needs. This is especially important for people suffering from dementia or cognitive impairment.
The place we call home is the place that feels most comfortable and secure. A sense of home can become especially important as we age.
