Speech Therapy

Loss of speech is frustrating, but can be regained partially or fully with the aid of trained speech therapists. Our certified and licensed Speech Therapy professionals are trained in the diagnosis and therapeutic techniques to improve speech reception, difficulty swallowing and other oral problems. We focus on cognitive retraining, expressive language and speech, swallowing skills training for any neurological/cognitive deficits, and other areas.

Our Speech Therapy regimen helps our residents

  • Regain speech and language skills
  • Improve oral muscle strength
  • Learn or re-learn verbal as well as non-verbal communication skills

Congratulations to Amy Douglas, LPN as she celebrates 20 years of service this month at our Majestic Care of at North Vernon community!

“My passion for LTC stems from the opportunity it gives you to make a difference in the life of your residents. It allows you to really get to know your residents and their families, and form long lasting relationships with them. It’s nice to run into a family member of a previous patient from years ago and the family member hugs you.”
