Excellence in Rehabilitative Care
Beth Sholom is widely recognized in the Richmond, VA, community for the high quality of its rehabilitative care – helping people overcome strokes, falls and other conditions.
Our comprehensive Rehabilitation Department serves Beth Sholom residents and is also open to the public. Through goal-setting and close, individualized attention, our physicians, along with physical, occupational and speech therapists help patients maximize their potential and return to the condition they were in before injury, whenever possible.
The Beth Sholom’s Outpatient and Inpatient Speech Pathology Departments specialize in treating people whose speech has been affected by Parkinson’s Disease. Participants rapidly see progress in their voice and speech through the use of SPEAK OUT!® , a highly effective speech therapy program, developed by Parkinson Voice Project. SPEAK OUT!® typically consists of twelve individual speech therapy sessions conducted by a trained speech-language pathologist. Together, the patient and the speech-language pathologist work their way through a series of speech, voice, and cognitive exercises. The primary goals of SPEAK OUT!® are to strengthen the muscles used for speaking and swallowing.
Upon completion of SPEAK OUT!®, each participant enters the maintenance phase of the two-part therapy program called the LOUD Crowd which consist of other SPEAK OUT ! graduate who work together in a group setting to maintain their strong voices. Since Parkinson’s is a progressive, degenerative condition, maintaining the strength of one’s voice can be a challenge. The LOUD Crowd® provides ongoing vocal practice, accountability, support, and encouragement. By participating in LOUD Crowd®, patients have been shown to maintain their SPEAK OUT!® results for more than five years and counting.
