Speech Therapy for Seniors in Residential Care
Kruková, Laura ; Durdilová, Lucie (advisor) ; Komorná, Marie (referee)
1 ABSTRACT The topic of this bachelor thesis is speech therapy for seniors in residential care. The thesis is divided into four chapters, which include both theory and empirical research. The theoretical part contains information about age and aging, various acquired neurologic speech and language disorders and available social services for the elderly in the Czech Republic. The practical part of the thesis is based on quantitative methodology, a questionnaire survey with the aim to determine whether speech therapy care is provided in nursing homes for seniors in the capital city of Prague as a part of comprehensive services. The analysis of many Czech and foreign resources was used in both parts of this thesis. The aim of this bachelor thesis is to compare the theoretical background with the practical implementation of speech therapy care in residential facilities for the elderly.
