For people with stroke, dementia, hearing loss or other illnesses, communication can be very difficult. If you need assistance with speaking, thinking or swallowing, our speech therapists can help.  Our Speech Therapy professionals work with patients to help them regain or strengthen their ability to speak with ease and clarity. We utilize the latest technology and clinical processes to help patients regain the ability to communicate and improve swallowing.

Speech-language pathologists can:
