With the increased risk of diseases such as strokes, dementia, head injuries, etc., the elderly often encounter problems in communicating. There may be problems in processing auditory information or mentally recalling an event or a word. Our speech therapists will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine if there is a language-based problem, the orientation of the problem and best possible treatment. We focus our efforts on helping each patient learn to process, organize or recall information, and offer some additional tactics of communicating, such as writing down information or recording it. We also work to help with swallowing disorders that are often the result of a stroke.
