Speech & Language Therapy
with Red & Yellow Care
Speech & Language Therapy in later life.
Speech and Language Therapy provides treatment and support for anyone who has difficulties with communication, their cognitive (thinking) skills and/or swallowing.
A Speech and Language Therapist (SALT) will assess a person’s eating and drinking skills to ensure they are tolerating their oral intake without coughing, choking or aspirating (when food or fluids ‘go down the wrong way’). A SALT may assist in preventing chest infections (aspiration pneumonia) and potential hospital admissions if they are able to provide the appropriate assessment, treatment and advice. In order to do this they may recommend safe-swallow strategies, a modified diet and/or fluids.
A SALT can also use cognitive communication intervention to maximise strengths and address weaknesses related to underlying structures and functions that affect a person’s talking, understanding and executive function (such as memory, problem solving, planning skills or initiation). A SALT facilitates activity and participation by assisting the person to acquire new skills and strategies. Speech and Language Therapy can support a person to use effective compensatory behaviours, communication techniques, strategies or self-regulatory skills. It will also include the education of family and caregivers to help them support these interventions.

I used Red & Yellow Care for the first time to make an assessment for my mother. Found the service very easy to use, customer friendly and helpful.
When I spoke to you on the telephone when I was at my wits end, I felt that I was at last speaking to someone who understood, really understood my situation.
John was inspired by Dr Smith, it’s been a revelation. He’s not as scared about everything, not fearing the future as much and is feeling more positive
