"Emily has been a great asset in assisting our mom with her recovery process following her stroke. She is very patient and attentive to our mom’s individual needs. Since the stroke, our mom’s speech has improved tremendously. The exercises Emily provides both during their sessions and to practice on her own time are super beneficial. Our entire family is thankful for Emily’s time and compassion helping to ease the recovery process following a tragic event."
