Be Active Be Well in-home speech therapy services are designed to help individuals who have difficulties with communication or swallowing. These disorders, which are often the outcome of a stroke, illness, post-surgical or other medical condition, can be addressed through a variety of different methods depending on the particular disorder.
Speech therapists create a personalized regimen for each client based on an assessment of their individual language and swallowing difficulties. The main focus of speech therapy is to improve the ability to understand spoken language as well as the ability to articulate oneself. If needed our speech therapists create alternative communication strategies.
Our services aim to breakdown both the physical and the cognitive barriers that limit effective communication. Speech Therapy also deals with the mechanics of annunciation and can help individuals looking to enhance their voice quality, volume, or articulation.

“Lisa, Speech Therapist, listens to the client instead of the speech therapy textbook. Consequently, she tailors speech therapy to what her client needs to become fluent. After a severe stroke left me unable to speak a word, Lisa helped me to talk again, with humor, intelligence, kindness, and most of all, by treating me like a person, not a patient.” – Tim
