Speech Therapy  

Many stroke patients, or those who have suffered a severe accident, require the help of a speech therapist. Kaweah Delta Home Health speech therapists are fully licensed and experienced in helping a wide range of patients with all degrees of speech reception and expression issues.  

The sudden loss of such basic cognitive abilities can be extremely frustrating to a patient, and the road back is often a long and difficult one. At Kaweah Delta Home Health, our speech therapists have a unique understanding of what our patients are going through. Our speech therapists are not only highly trained, they are patient and compassionate as well. By using specific speech exercises and memory training, our goal is to help our patients communicate with their loved ones once again.  

Our patients’ families and caregivers participation in the speech therapy process is crucial to a positive outcome. That’s why our speech therapists work closely with them in order to optimize the effectiveness of the therapy so exercises and training can be continued within the home between therapy sessions.
