Speech Therapy (Speech Pathology) in Riverton Utah

Speech Therapy

Therapy does a couple of things. Our entire purpose in working at Country Care Life Center is to maximize patient’s independence and well being. Many people who come to Country Life Care Center have language, speech or swallowing disorders and are taken care of in our speech therapy department (also known as speech pathology).

 Who Needs Speech Therapy?

Patients come from all types of health ailments including those who have suffered from a stroke, had a tracheotomy, have a hearing issue, a head injury, and our younger patients often have a developmental delay issue, or autism. We work to provide all of them with greater independence and well being. While these language, speech and swallowing disorders may vary from patient to patient, our consistently friendly attitudes to our patients do not and we know how to work with you, your budget and your family if you find yourself in any of these problems.

Issues that are Solved

Sometimes the issue is cognition and our speech pathologists work to help you organize thoughts, plan better, or even pay attention more closely. Other times the issue is a speech disorder like aphasia, which is caused by damage to the brain or the issue is a social communication disorder where a patient may have problems verbalizing what he or she wants to say, or has problems asking questions, greeting or commenting. Swallowing can also be a difficult task and some people gain a swallowing disorder, or “dysphagia”, after a surgery, illness, injury or stroke. If you or a loved one is in need of our sub acute care after a traumatic event, such as a stroke, brain injury, accident or surgery, and need to implement speech therapy into your plan, please call us at (801) 417-9400 today for a free, no obligation tour of Country Care Life Center located at 13747 Redwood Rd in Riverton, Utah and see how you or your loved one can gain or regain their ability to speak, communicate, sing or say “I love you” once more to anyone who wants to hear.
