“American Senior Communities” posted in a 2014 article about speech therapy’s critical nature in dealing with elderly people, saying that “the ability to communicate effectively is important at any age, but for seniors it is absolutely vital.” The article goes on to say that if a senior cannot successfully describe ‘what they need, where they hurt, or what is wrong in general, an emergency situation can easily occur.”

Our therapists have a protocol in place to help your loved one make steady progress to be able to communicate more effectively. After our comprehensive evaluation can determine if the problem is language-based and what the best plan is to mitigate it. As we age, according to American Senior Communities, speech therapy can help seniors learn how to speak, using vocal exercises to help them communicate effectively once again.
