As medical Speech-Language Pathologists (SLPs) we have been trained in treating complications from strokes, traumatic brain injuries, brain disease/cancer, head and neck injuries/cancer, and lifestyle changes in families that arise from various types of dementia. If the brain has been injured in any way, we can help evaluate and create a treatment plan based on your individual needs. We believe in getting out of the office to conduct therapy in real-world environments (like classrooms, workplaces, grocery stores, even your own kitchen!). We believe working as a team with you and your loved ones is the best approach to success.
We believe that the right approach, combined with evidence-based practice and education for all those involved in care, provides an environment for maximum rehab potential to be achieved. Functional strategies are partnered with interactive, real-life scenarios for maintenance of independence to fullest extent possible. Caregiver education and inclusion in the process are critical to overall success. We believe partnership among therapists, clients, and family members is vital to achieving your goals. We are experienced in neurological injury from the ICU, to acute rehabilitation, to long-term care, home health and outpatient settings. We have worked in comprehensive certified stroke centers, nationally-recognized TBI and stroke long-term care hospitals, inpatient rehab facilities, senior living communities, and private homes. We are competent and confident in all areas of neurological injury and methods of appropriate intervention.
We are certified in traumatic brain injury (CBIS), dementia care (NCCDP), LSVT for voice disorders, VitalStim (NMES), swallowing therapy related to eating disorders, and Myofascial Release. We are committed to ongoing continuing education for best practices, and go above and beyond what is required for our license maintenance. Education is critical to our success.
We are honored to collaborate with the Rocky Mountain Stroke Center as well, sponsoring events and teaching classes for cognitive-communication every week! https://www.strokecolorado.org/. We also sponsor and collaborate with the local ALS Association, Rocky Mountain Chapter, providing AAC services to those in need. http://webco.alsa.org/site/PageServer?pagename=CO_homepage
We have years of intense neurological injury and degenerative disease therapy experience, combined with certifications targeting best practices for these disease processes. Our clinical background includes hospital, home health, long term care, senior living, and outpatient therapy services, so we have seen what it takes to make progress in every setting from the beginning to the end of your healing process. We believe that the person is most important, and should be treated holistically and in a nurturing manner at all times. We pride ourselves on our care, and trust that we can make a difference together for you and your loved ones.
Strokes can be life-altering and can affect speech, language, swallowing, voice, and cognition. Stroke not only affects the individual who suffered from it, but the family and friends as well. We evaluate, treat, and educate throughout our therapy time together, targeting your goals and maximum functional gains for success.
Traumatic brain injury (TBI) presents in various ways, affecting someone's ability to return to work or school, manage their family or household, and/or cope with emotions or stressors. A Neurologist once said to us, "Once you've seen one TBI, you've seen only one TBI." No two look alike. We are adept at evaluating and treating the impacts that TBI has had on your life, specifically the intricacies and specific nuances with which each TBI presents.
These include, but are not limited to: Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), Parkinson's Disease, Huntington's Chorea, Alzheimer's Dementia, Frontal-Temporal Dementia, Lewy Body Dementia, Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP)
