Palmeira Speech Therapy Services
A Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP), sometimes called a speech therapist (ST), specializes in the evaluation and treatment of swallowing, cognition/thinking skills and communication disorders. Palmeira Home Health’s SLP collaborates with your physicians, nurses, psychiatric nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, social workers and dieticians to provide holistic care that leads to a better outcome. SLP services aim to improve your quality of life through regaining the ability to eat and swallow, improving cognitive skills for increased independence and helping to regain communication skills to express wants, needs and ideas. The therapist benefits by coming into your home to more effectively assess your real-world needs and formulate an individualized treatment plan. Often patients with memory issues, dementia or cognitive impairment respond better to treatment in a familiar setting like their own home.
Our SLP therapist provides comprehensive care including:
- Evaluation and treatment of communication disorders, swallowing, and cognition deficits
- Addressing Activities of Daily Living (ADL)
- Identifying a risk of decreased mobility, falls and wound development
- Patient/family/caregiver Education related to the diagnosis

All services provided by your Home Health was greatly appreciated. Your staff was very personal and interested in my recovery.
Palmeira Home Health has the very best Occupational and Physical Therapists! They do so much with/for my uncle. I would highly recommend them for family members who need home health care!
My therapist was so wonderful and helpful. Kim, recognized I had scar tissue build-up and broke it up with massage. I'm now going to outpatient therapy because of how well my treatment went.
Every single employee from Palmeira Health were extremely helpful, polite and caring. Each one made me feel important and they were here for me not because it was their job!
Jesus (the Physical Therapist) helped me get a lot stronger.
