Speech Language Pathology is Making a Difference... One Word at a Time!
Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs) represent the hope that still glimmers. Amidst our current public health emergency, SLPs' commitment to resident safety and well-being – through effective speech and language treatments, cognitive-communication strategies, and practical solutions for swallowing disorders – are truly extraordinary.
Each May, Better Hearing & Speech Month (BHSM) provides an opportunity to raise awareness about communication disorders and the role of ASHA members in providing life-altering treatment. To celebrate, HealthPRO® Heritage applauds dedicated, hard-working Speech Language Pathologists whose contributions are an integral part of the HealthPRO® Heritage team and the world. This year, the profession of Speech Language Pathology is 94 years old and the 2020 theme is "Communication at Work." In gratitude for all you do, here is a special message celebrating our wonderful Speech Language Pathologists. Please enjoy; and think: “What does Speech Language Pathology really mean to me?”
Innovative Therapy During a Pandemic
During this time of high anxiety and uncertainty, patients/residents may be apprehensive and unsure about their care and therapy treatments. Our therapists help to communicate effectively and help to lessen any stress or anxiety the patient/resident/family member(s) may be experiencing. One of our key responsibilities during this time is to support all through the entire process. As we continue to take further precautions to ensure all are safe in their communities, we want to make sure all patients/residents are taking care of themselves mentally, emotionally, and physically during this time.
