Preparing Michelle for the future

We are excited to share the journey of one of our valued clients, Michelle, who has been utilising our mobile Allied Health services to maintain her current level of functioning and prepare for the future. 

Michelle was diagnosed with Huntington’s Disease 16 years ago, and for the past year, she’s been working closely with our Speech Pathologist, Freya and is also being supported by our Multi-Disciplinary Team, consisting of Occupational Therapy, Physiotherapy and Exercise Physiology services for optimal care.

During her weekly Speech Pathology sessions, the primary focus has been on voice and message banking. This is a process that synthesises natural voice recordings into computerised voice recordings to provide a level of identity for individuals who may become dependent on an alternative and augmentative (AAC) device that can replace or support her natural speech in the future. 

This is extremely important for Michelle’s future, as voice and message banking will allow her to maintain her vocal identity with ease should she ever require an AAC device.

Not only has Michelle voice banked 500 phrases, but she’s also recorded over 50 messages, including personal ones like “I love you” and “I need help”. This now gives Michelle peace of mind that her own voice can support effective communication in the future. 

At Gen Physio, we pride ourselves on providing mobile Allied Health services consisting of Multi-Disciplinary professionals. Our goal is to provide our clients with everything they need to maintain functional independence and improve their quality of life. 

The ongoing management and support we offer to Michelle helps her to stay proactive about her health, ensuring she has the resources to prepare for any health-related challenges down in the future.
