Your Ally for Aging in Place
Moonshot Therapy & Wellness is a private speech therapy practice providing in-home and teletherapy services to adults in Charlottesville and Albemarle Counties. We partner with our patients, their family members, and other healthcare providers to preserve the freedom and independence of everyone we serve. Through a combination of caregiver coaching and evidence-based therapy methods, we enhance our patients’ communication skills and quality of life.
We are committed to providing healthcare literacy, supporting client preferences, and providing comprehensive communication, cognition, and swallowing therapy services. Our goal is to empower clients and family members to navigate healthcare decisions with confidence.
How We're Different
We believe that you are the expert in your care, and we are committed to engaging patients in the planning, treatment, and decision-making of their own healthcare. Family members are encouraged to participate in the therapy process, working together to achieve goals and promote quality of life.
Jennifer N. Best, M.A., CCC-SLP, CDP
Speech-Language Pathologist, Owner
I am a Speech-Language Pathologist (SLP) and Certified Dementia Practitioner (CDP) with experience treating adults in their homes and in long-term care facilities. I am dedicated to educating and supporting families as a whole and providing alternative solutions to long-term care facilities. I founded Moonshot Therapy & Wellness to realize a higher standard of therapy that keeps compassion and humanity at the core. By helping adults adapt to changes in their communication, cognition, and swallowing, my goal is to help them age in place and take control of their own care. I truly see my patients, not just their diagnosis, and I look forward to learning your story.
Convenient & Flexible Therapy Options for Adults
We step into your world to support you during daily tasks and activities. Home visits allow us to practice functional skills that you will use each day and focus on activities that are important to you. In-home therapy is also ideal for dementia caregiver training as it allows us to observe daily routines and interactions to offer the most effective solutions.
Teletherapy services are available to individuals and families in the state of Virginia. Online therapy is convenient for patients who cannot drive or who do not have access to reliable transportation, as well as those who live outside of our in-person service radius. This is an effective option for education, treatment, and family member support.
Getting Started is Easy
Begin with a Free Consultation
Call us directly to schedule an initial consultation where we will discuss your concerns and determine how to best meet your needs. Physicians and other healthcare providers may also make direct referrals, in which case, we will call the patient to schedule an evaluation.
Attend an Evaluation Session
All therapy services begin with an initial evaluation which includes a patient and family interview. Next, we will create a treatment plan and set functional goals that are both important for daily life and meaningful to the patient and their family.
Participate in Therapy from Home
Therapy will then begin in-home or online. Periodic progress reports will be provided to discuss therapy outcomes, examine goals, and determine whether adjustments to the treatment plan are needed. When goals or session limits are met, we will discuss our wellness plan options.
We currently are in-network providers for speech therapy with Medicare Part B. We also offer affordable private pay options and support for clients who are not receiving Medicare-eligible services or who are not in-network with our contracted insurance companies.
