Mental capacity assessments

Our assessment process

Our team of expert speech and language therapists at SLT UK provide a service to support individuals, carers and family members by assessing the mental capacity of the patient to guide the management of eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties.

What does a capacity assessment involve?

The speech and language therapist will be required to carry out a full eating, drinking and swallowing assessment in order to establish the individual’s strengths and areas of difficulties with their eating, drinking, swallowing and communication.

Mental capacity assessments:

Discuss the difficulties the individual is experiencing with eating, drinking and swallowing difficulties and explain the recommendations.

If you feel you may benefit from speech and language therapy or would like any more information on our services please email or call 0330 088 5643.
