Home Care RN provides the service of Speech Therapy in any event that results in speech difficulty or loss for patients. Problems with speech can pose a lot of challenges and such problems can arise with certain conditions such as a stroke.
Specific Conditions That Require Speech Therapy
Certain conditions require that speech therapy be given to those individuals. These conditions include the following:
- Dysphagia – Difficulty in swallowing
- Dysarthria – Slurred speech
- Aphasia – Decrease in the ability of understanding communication
Dysphagia can range from minor delay to experiencing a lot of pain and then not being able to swallow on the extreme end. The condition consists of more than a dozen various causes since swallowing involves more than 50 nerve and muscle pairs.
Some potential causes for this condition include brain tumors, stroke, Lyme disease, Wilson’s, Parkinson’s, MS, and head injuries. Depending on individual needs, speech therapy can cover issues related to avoiding conversations at the time when a person is tired, safe swallowing, knowing methods of using alternative communication forms, associating the mouth movements and specific words.
In this condition, we help our patients to understand communications better. Our services play an especially critical role when our patients are making use of an assistive hearing device, the use of which can be extremely challenging, especially initially.
