When a loved one suffers a stroke or possibly has some damage done to his or her voice box, a speech therapist is brought in to help. Speech pathologists are specialists who offer a wide range of services. When a loved one loses the power of proper speech it can be very hard on the whole family and very frustrating for the patient. That’s why Kenneth Rozenberg makes sure that there is a therapist at all of the affiliate locations of Centers for Specialty Care.
It can take quite awhile for patients to regain the power of speech so it’s important to be patient. If the person has had a tracheotomy it can be an even harder process. This is because there is special care that needs to be provided for those patients who have recently undergone a tracheotomy. Care of the trach site is done by specialized nurses and physicians to make sure that there is no infection or skin breakdown under the trach tubes.
During the time of recovery a speech pathologist may be brought in to help restore speech to a tracheotomy patient.
Kenneth Rozenberg understands the tension and frustration that can come from not being understood or able to understand. That’s why speech pathologists and tracheotomy care is such a priority at all Centers for Specialty Care.
