Ellyn Dearing joined the Livingston HealthCare Rehabilition Services team
in January of 2018 as a Speech Language Pathologist at Livingston HealthCare.
Ellyn likes to make functional abilities the focus of her work with patients.
“I enjoy working on goals and tasks that are important to my patients
that have been impacted by speech, communication, or cognitive impairments,”
Ellyn says. “Whether it is being understood by others, requesting
their favorite toy, reading the newspaper, or learning how to sequence
how to use the microwave in order to remain in their home, I always strive
to include patient-centered goals into my plans of care.”
Ellyn relishes in the pace of the medical environment and the energy of
the passionate professionals she works with every day.
She ended up in Montana on whim, deciding to settle here after a short
vacation to the Treasure State. Like most Montanans, she enjoys all things
outdoors. Ellyn says she would “collect dogs if I could” and
also loves cooking, reading, 90s movies and long road trips.
