Most insurance companies offer coverage for therapy services, but the level of coverage can vary greatly. We recommend talking to one of our admissions and marketing directors or therapy directors at any of our communities to best determine what insurance would cover. They can help guide you to what your best payment options will be.
As we age there are natural changes that happen in the body that can effect speech or hearing. For instance, it's normal for vocal cords and larynx muscles to change or weaken as part of the aging process which can make it harder to speak. Losing the ability to communicate can leave seniors frustrated or feeling isolated. Speech therapy offers a way for seniors to be able to strengthen and improve communication, feeding, and swallowing as they age.
