Speech pathology

Our home offers speech pathology services to assess, diagnose and treat communication or swallowing disorders. Our local allied health therapists can provide speech pathology services in-home as you require, or as part of a high-care plan.

Chaplains visit our home, and are available on-call for pastoral ministry and specific religious rituals. We can also arrange pastoral care from a religious representative from your own faith for your convenience.
