Before your loved ones undergo speech therapy for seniors, they need to undergo a comprehensive assessment to determine their condition. Speech impairment is a natural process as the vocal cords become less elastic through time. However, it can also be caused by many reasons like dehydration, depression, medication and injuries to name a few. At Haym Salomon, a Brooklyn-based rehabilitation and nursing home, we have a speech-language pathologist. They can look into the problem of your loved ones and how the issue can be addressed.
