Speech Therapy

Speech therapy involves more than correcting pronunciation. Difficulty swallowing, slurred or slowed speech, and other communication issues are common results of an individual who has experienced a stroke or other chronic condition. is especially important to those who have experienced a stroke or chronic conditions that cause difficulty swallowing and articulating their words.

  • Swallowing evaluations
  • Nutritional assessment & education
  • Language skill recovery
  • Speech production

  • General communication
  • Tube feeding assessment and education

Our OTs are familiar with helping patients with the following tasks:

  • Getting dressed

Ongoing education and ensuring our patients’ environment is as safe as possible is a keystone to our therapy treatments. This may include working with our patients to rearrange furniture, creating visual contrast on light switches and other objects to reduce risk of falls in the home while our staff is not there.

Our team will provide exercises to help individuals regain lost strength and energy while also educating each patient on energy conservation techniques. Our therapy programs often include setting up equipment in the home and developing exercise programs specific to the individual’s needs. We most frequently aid patients in post-hospitalization recovery, and it is our goal to prevent rehospitalization as much as possible.

As of 2022, it is estimated that 15 million patients will receive speech, occupational, and/or physical therapy in their homes. Likewise, more than 600 million patient visits to therapists in home health settings are anticipated.

Home-based therapy services are not only growing in popularity, but they are also becoming more and more necessary as our population ages. The Baby Boomer generation is aging, and as people live longer, the need for chronic disease management and rehabilitation services will continue to increase. 

The younger population is not immune to the need for home-based therapy services either. According to the CDC, autism spectrum disorder affects 1 out of 59 children. With such a high prevalence, it's likely that many of these children will require speech and occupational therapy services in their residences.

There are many reasons to seek therapy services in the home, but some of the most common benefits include:


Home-based therapy is a more convenient option for many people. You don't have to travel to a therapy office or clinic, and you can receive therapy services at a time that is convenient for you. You also avoid the long waiting times associated with therapy offices and clinics.


Home-based therapy services are more flexible than therapy services at a clinic or hospital. Your therapist can design a treatment plan specifically tailored to your needs and goals without the constraints of a traditional therapy setting.


Some people feel more comfortable receiving therapy services in the privacy of their own homes. This can be especially beneficial for people who are embarrassed or self-conscious about their conditions and might feel uncomfortable receiving therapy in a public setting.


Receiving therapy in your home can help you feel more normal. It can be difficult to adjust to a new life after an injury or diagnosis, but receiving treatment in your home can help you maintain some sense of normalcy since you're in a familiar setting.

Reduced Stress

Home-based therapy can help reduce stress levels. When you're in a hospital or therapy office, there are often other people around who receive treatment. This can be overwhelming and stressful for some people, but receiving therapy at home can help lower stress levels.

Lesser medical bills

One of the main benefits of using home-based therapy services is that they can help you save money on medical bills. Hospital and clinic-based therapy services can be very expensive, but home-based therapy services are typically much more affordable.

There are many advantages to using home-based therapy services, but ultimately the decision of whether or not to use them is up to you. If you think home-based therapy services might be right for you, please don't hesitate to reach out to us for more information. We would be happy to answer any questions you have and help you get started with therapy services in the comfort of your own home.
