For National Provider Appreciation Day we wanted to send a BIG thank you to the facilities that allow us to provide our patients the means to achieve- day by day, by day by day. We can’t thank you enough and we appreciate all that you do! #NationalProviderAppreciationDay
We wanted to take a moment and snap a shot of two new SLP’s here at Sfs. Make sure to introduce yourself to pediatric specialist (and world traveler) Miss M and deaf and heard of hearing (fluent in american sign language) Clinician Miss Chelsey! They’re swimming for the sun in more ways than one by being open and volunteering their commitment. How are you swimming?
Our bilingual receptionist, Maybeth relays all messages in an immediate manner. You should feel confident your messages will make it to the proper party. Most likely before you’re even off the phone. Here’s a glimpse as she was in mid communication with a caller, relaying a message to one of our schedulers. There’s telling you we’ll “provide the means to achieve” and then there’s doing it. We’re #NotYourAverageClinic
Captured a Kodak moment of our Cleveland Clinic bound Clinicians as they made their way toward The Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health yesterday. Sharing their insight and knowledge on the importance of swallowing and the common swallowing disorders people face that influence their health and well being. We’re not your average clinic, and Mr. B and Miss Allie are definitely NOT your average Clinicians! #ClevelandClinicReady #SwimmingForTheSunInMoreWaysThanOne
Today is “National “Drink through a Straw Day”. To some, this may be a fun-filled day to showcase your undying love for that strawberry piña colada. But, to us here at Sfs Therapies, this day has an entirely different meaning. For many who have a feeding or swallowing disorder, use of a straw could be a way of life. Following a stroke, brain tumor or injury, the muscles of the lips and mouth may be weak, requiring a straw to drink. Elders diagnosed with dementia may find drinking with a straw to be easier, as it gives them more control over the liquid. Children diagnosed with Down Syndrome or Cerebral Palsy can use straws to improve the strength and movement in their lips and tongue. So, before you take drinking through a straw for granted, remember those who can’t live without it.
