May is Better Hearing and Speech Month, and what a fantastic time to celebrate a great profession. Communication and swallowing interventions are integral to therapy services for senior populations. We provide diagnosis and treatment for speech, language, cognition, and voice to ensure a person can communicate effectively and as independently as possible. Additionally, with dysphagia affecting approximately 40% of the populations we serve, speech pathology services are needed and expected in all of our settings– independent living, assisted living, memory care, and SNF.
Katie Holterman, M.S. CCC-SLP, BCS-S, Senior Director of Clinical Programming and Development, shared her thoughts on the growth of the profession of Speech-Language Pathology. “Speech has come a long way in the time I’ve been practicing. As an SLP myself, I’m incredibly excited at the growth we’ve had in the past few years, and a major goal at Legacy is to continue to ensure growth in speech pathology services.”
The SLPs below were recognized by their team members as being outstanding assets to the residents and communities we serve. Thank you to our therapists who go above and beyond each day. We truly appreciate you!
