I have been in the speech pathology profession for over 39 years.
It has been my specialty with aging, dementia, dysphagia and other neurological impairments.
I have patients and families that I really like and they give me lots of compliments when I treat their loved ones to improve to a higher functional level to be able to remain in the home with caregivers.
Teaching the caregivers is one of my specialties and we review the caregiver training exercises during our sessions to ensure good carryover.
Lots of changes are coming to our profession yet we treat patients and caregivers with respect and continue to spread the information about our profession to help others that may not be aware of what our skills can do for their loved ones.
