Treatment of Degenerative Conditions

Back

  • We aim for maintenance for as long as possible and usually provide a program of maintenance exercises so that you can attempt to slow down deterioration of speech / swallowing musculature.
  • We recognise the difficult decision making you may have around quality of life issues, eg with eating and drinking.
  • We advocate the Frazier Water Protocol for those who are Nil By Mouth and will let you know if this is appropriate after assessment.
  • We can organise demonstrations of communication / speech aids if this is helpful.
