No person is an island and that is especially true when undergoing rehabilitation and speech therapy. Therefore, our speech therapists are an integral part of the rehab team. This enables our therapists to assist patients in a "team" approach to ensure a holistic approach to personal rehabilitation. Our team includes physicians, nurses, and therapy staff as well as family members. The family is an important part of the rehabilitation process and they learn about the recovery process from our specialists. Families learn to understand the challenges facing their loved ones and are taught to assist with rehabilitation at home.
