Speech Therapy

Speech Therapy and Medicare Home Health Care

Professional Speech Therapists treat people with speech and language disorders often associated with post stroke patients. Speech therapists also help people with swallowing disorders, teaching techniques which will help them to swallow safely.

Under your home health care benefit, a Medicare home health care Speech Therapist will help you to improve speech (aphasia) and correct swallowing (dysphasia) by using therapeutic techniques to enhance communication and avoid choking. They will work with you to strengthen speech skills such as word orders, forming sounds and using the right words.

Some of the illnesses that trigger speech and swallowing impairment include:

  • Stroke
  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)
  • Neuro-Muscular Disorders
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Neck Cancer
  • Parkinson’s Disease.
