Your patient may swear by the old gods and the new that they are thickening their liquids and doing their exercises, but are they really? Tiffani Wallace has found your beloved home programs covered in dust under the couch and is here to tell us where to go next. Home health is about meeting patients where they’re at (literally) and seeing what really happens when people leave the clinic and head into the wild.

What traits will make a great home health SLP, what tools will you need for treatment, and what tricks will you need to get a copy of that instrumental from the hospital? Tiffani also gives the final word on where our scope of practice begins and ends in the home health setting, and the upsides of home health, like effortful Starbucks swallows!
