Palatine Nursing Home and Rehabilitation Center — “Where it feels like home and you are treated like family”

Speech Therapy

Palatine Bridge Nursing Home residents

Speech-Language Pathologists identify, evaluate, and treat a wide range of speech, language, voice, resonance, cognitive, and swallowing deficits/disorders resulting from a variety of diagnoses; some of which include: Parkinson’s disease, stroke, head injury, dementia, voice disorders, dysphagia, and stuttering.

Therapy can target the improvement of expressive language skills, receptive language skills, speech fluency, speech intelligibility, cognitive deficits (e.g., memory, attention, executive functioning), voice deficits, fluency deficits, and swallowing deficits. The Speech-Language Pathologist works closely with the resident, their family, nursing staff, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and any other members of the team in order to create a comprehensive patient-centered plan.

Examples of Speech Therapy Services provided at Palatine Nursing Home:

  • Language therapy to improve communication skills after a stroke or other neurological incident.
