South County Home Health Speech Therapy


You or a loved one may suffer a stroke, brain injury or other illness that affects the muscles that control swallowing and/or help you form words. Speech therapy involves much more than relearning or improving your ability to form words, and it can help people of all ages. It can also help you:

  • Understand and process what is being said.

  • Find other ways to communicate after a stroke, including making gestures or facial expressions.

  • Read, write, perform calculations, and remember things.

  • Use strategies to cope when communication is difficult or problematic.

South County Home Health speech therapists will work with you to develop a program that can help strengthen the muscles of the mouth, neck, and face to alleviate problems such as choking and coughing, while improving the ability to speak clearly, chew, and swallow.
