What Can Speech Therapy at Home Do for a Senior?
Working with a speech therapist in your home will help you better express yourself, as well as overcome any challenges when it comes to swallowing your words!
Speech Therapy helps people work through trouble articulating themselves while undergoing treatments like working out muscle memory associated with certain pronunciations, correcting sounds by exploring different voice qualities such as pitch and volume, training oneself how to use verbal pauses appropriately during the conversation (with concentration), stabilizing breathing patterns before talking so an individual can maintain control over vocal cords without too much strain which might lead them back into another episode
A few benefits of this therapy for elderly adults are:
-Improvement of speech and voice clarity
-Increasing comprehension and verbal expression
-Improvement of chewing and swallowing
-Maximizing cognitive language skills: memory, problem-solving, and abstract reasoning
