I felt led to write a testimonial about my experiences at Howard House. It has been a privilege to provide speech therapy services to residents of the house for many years. Not only is it a beautiful house in a lovely, quiet setting, the overall atmosphere is positive and uplifting. The caregivers are passionate about their work and deeply care about the residents. In fact, they treat the residents like extended family!
Over the years, I have demonstrated techniques for safe swallowing, maximizing communication, cognitive skills and overall independence in both individual and group settings. The staff is great at following through and as a result the residents have ongoing opportunities for growth. I’m always pleased to see events on the calendar that allow residents to go out in the community which expands their world.
Thank you for always being open to my suggestions and providing the guidance to your staff so that residents have the best quality of life possible.
