Speech Therapy Services

The role of the Speech Language Pathologist (SLP) at St. Vincent de Paul is to enable effective communication for residents with communication disorders and to promote safety in swallowing for clients with dysphagia. This is achieved through a hierarchy of care aims that include assessment, prevention and anticipation, support and maintenance of abilities and skills, strategies to enable, restore, or rehabilitate abilities and when this is not possible to intervene palliatively, thereby contributing to the safeguarding of the residents’ quality of life.
