SLI Focuses on Cognitive and Communication Wellness with the Aging Population
Every Tuesday afternoon, excited chatter and trills of laughter ring throughout the Samuel A. Green House, an independent living facility for seniors in Elkins Park, Pa. One week, the seniors performed a rendition of “Do Re Mi” from The Sound of Music; another, they shared various memories based upon the color of the M&M they chose. These fun, interactive activities are part of the weekly speech-language classes the Speech-Language Institute of Salus University has been hosting since September. Run by clinical educator Jill Grogg, CCC-SLP and several speech-language pathology (SLP) students, the classes focus on cognitive and communication wellness for aging adults.
