Strengthening Verbal Skills with In-Home Speech Therapy in El Paso
Desierto Home Healthcare provides programs for in-home speech therapy, assisting patients of all ages to recover and cope with language, speech, and swallowing disorders. Our professional speech therapists will come to your home and work one-on-one with you or your loved one on skills and techniques that will enhance patient comfort and the ability to communicate.
What to Expect from Our In-Home Speech Therapy Services
Our highly-trained speech therapists will collaborate with the prescribing physician on an in-home treatment plan which will include specific goals for the patient. Therapists may also work closely with family members and other caregivers to teach strategies that will better facilitate and maintain communication with the patient.
Speech therapists and language pathologists help patients who are dealing with a variety of medical issues. Some of the conditions in which an in-home speech therapy program may be necessary include:
- Following a stroke, trauma, or surgery that impacted communication or the patient’s ability to swallow.
- After the diagnosis of a neurologic disorder such as Parkinson’s disease or cerebral palsy.
- After being diagnosed with a cognitive disorder such as dementia.
- Any time communication or speech skills appear to have deteriorated.
We are committed to empowering both our clients and their families with our speech therapy services. Our proven techniques help patients regain independence.
Desierto Home Healthcare provides in-home articulation therapy which focuses on improving speech and communication skills. Articulation blunders can range from a few minor errors such as trying to articulate “cat” but instead saying “tat,” to severe issues where many errors and substitutions are made. The nurses and therapists at Desierto Home Healthcare are experienced in areas such as articulation delays and apraxia of speech and will administer effective therapy sessions.
Language delays can be attributed to a number of different issues such as age, injury, or disability. Our language-based therapy is enjoyable and done in a relaxing environment. Our patients often don’t even realize that they’re actually undergoing any kind of structured therapy session. Activities are tailored to the patient’s needs and daily activities. Ultimately, the activities are structured to improve the patient’s language skills. Our nurses have administered a variety of language therapies for patients dealing with medical conditions, autism, or other kinds of issues.
