SLP services aim to improve a person’s quality of life through regaining the ability to eat and swallow, improving cognitive skills for increased independence, and helping to regain communication skills to express wants, needs and ideas. Amedisys’ SLPs take advantage of being in the home to more effectively assess our patients’ real-world needs and individualize their treatment. Oftentimes patients with dementia or cognitive impairment respond better to treatment because they’re in a familiar setting – their own home.
Our SLP teams provide comprehensive care including:
Evaluation and treatment of communication disorders, swallowing and cognition deficits
Address Activities of Daily Living (ADL)
Identify risk of decreased mobility, falls and wound development
