A Client-Centered Approach to Adult SLP Services
E-Integrated SLP Services provides a client-centered approach for adults, who acquired difficulties with speech, dysphagia (swallowing disorders), receptive-expressive language, cognitive-communicative skills, and voice, thus, hindering the client’s ability to function at their highest potential with activities of daily living.
Our goal is to tailor services that bridge the gap between our clients’ prior level of function and current medical status. In essence, we simply want to improve our clients’ quality of life.
“I will be forever grateful that my father had the opportunity to work with Michelle. She is quiet honestly a lifesaver. Michelle began working with my father after a hospital stay because of a fall. He was depressed and showing signs of dementia. He is 91 and we felt we just had to accept his condition as permanent. But that was before we met Michelle. Michelle’s expertise, kindness and patience brought my father back to normal. I can’t say enough good things about her!”
“Michelle Mares was the speech therapist for my Aunt Jane and Uncle Ray a few years ago. I, their niece, was handling their care so I was in the house many times when Michelle was working with them. When I first met Michelle, it was obvious how sweet and caring she was. She was so patient with the 90+ year olds. She encouraged them with compassion to continue working on their memory work. Their memory continued to improve. Both Jane and Ray loved Michelle and worked well with her even though my uncle was very stubborn. When Michelle changed to a different home health company, we tried several other speech therapists. My aunt and uncle refused to work with anyone else, so we changed companies just to get Michelle back. She became part of our family. She continued to visit my uncle often, on her own time, after he went on hospice. Michelle drove out of town to come to my uncle’s funeral. It has been more than a year since my uncle died. Michelle and I continue to check in with each other on a regular basis. Anyone would be extremely blessed and lucky to have Michelle Mares as their speech therapist.”
