Twists and Turns On the Road to Therapy

Dad was scheduled for a speech therapy appointment today, at a place they were referred to by their doctor. They showed up for the appointment, surprised to see that they were at a place that Dad had gone to before for a session or two of Occupational Therapy (a place, by the way, in which he did not feel comfortable...). And when they went in to inquire about today's appointment FOR Speech Therapy, they were told that (surprise again...) this facility does not offer Speech Therapy. Somewhere there was a communication gap, obviously. :(
This place referred them to yet another location where Dad now has an appointment for next Monday afternoon.

I will say, that from experience in attempting to find a suitable place for Dad to have speech therapy back in the winter, that it is more difficult than you'd think to find a GOOD location for Speech Therapy. You'd think that it wouldn't be that hard. There are Occupational Therapists and Physical Therapists abundant, but when it comes to Speech Therapists the choices are fewer and 1st impressions are not always that stellar. So if you want to head into Speech might want to consider opening up an excellent facility in Florida. I think you'd have lots of customers.
