SanStone Health: Offering Residents Speech Therapy in NC
Losing your ability to speak or swallow after a neurological event or other medical experience can have a large impact on your ability to complete crucial activities. That’s why SanStone Health & Rehabilitation includes speech therapy in NC as part of our rehabilitation services. As a resident of our skilled nursing center, you can meet with our on-site speech therapists up to five times a week to improve your speech or swallowing abilities.
Personalized Treatment with Our Speech Therapists
At SanStone Health, our NC speech therapists provide individualized plans that help you fight speech or swallowing disorders. These disorders are often caused by:
- Neurological incidents, like strokes
- Cognitive defects
For both our short- and long-term care residents, we use a variety of effective speech therapy treatments:
- Electrical stimulation
- Deep pharyngeal nerve stimulation
- Vitalstim therapy
These treatments help to strengthen the swallowing response. If you are experiencing facial droop, neuromuscular stimulation can help build your facial muscles, which is important for appearance, speech and swallowing.
In addition, the speech therapists at SanStone work collaboratively with other care providers to increase the communication skills of residents with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia.
