History / Introduction

In 2018, New Life Psychiatric Rehabilitation Association introduced the Agency-based Speech Therapy Service. Agency-based Speech Therapy Service provides speech therapy to ageing service users in Long Stay Care Homes, Hostels for Moderately Mentally Handicapped Persons and Supported Hostel. It also offers consultation and demonstration to staff of related service unit and family members/care-givers on training programmes and treatment of individual service user.

 

Our Aims

Grounded on Care for People and Recovery-oriented practices, we aim at providing therapy, advice and assistance to help ageing service users to overcome problems in their daily life to the fullest extent as their disabilities permitted. The ultimate goal is to help ageing service users to achieve a maximum level of functioning in their daily life.

 

Our Services

The Service is delivered by various means of clinical activities with the primary components of clinical assessment, speech and pronunciation training as well as swallowing rehabilitation training. It covers a range of programmes as follows:

  1. clinical assessments on service users’ functioning in target training areas
  2. clinical consultations and treatments
  3. education and training for parents/care-givers/staff

 

Application & Exit of Service

  • Service users can approach officer-in-charge or social worker of their respective units for referral to the service; or staff can recommend service users in need to social worker for making the referral.
  • Speech therapist would conduct screening assessment for the suitability for receiving the service. If service user is suitable, an interview would be conducted to assess his/her needs and then formulate an individual rehabilitation plan.
  • When the aims of treatment are completed, service users would be discharged from the service; or when service users no longer need the service, they can approach our speech therapist.
