Rehabilitation programs can make a significant difference in one’s health and well being. The goal of our rehabilitation services is to accelerate healing and improve the client’s quality of life to the highest level possible.
We accomplish this goal by providing individualized programs developed by physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech-language pathologists in conjunction with the interdisciplinary team.
Occupational Therapy – OT focuses on activities and training that promote independence with managing day to day living tasks such as bathing, grooming, dressing and eating skills.
Physical Therapy – PT includes strengthening and retraining that will allow patients to become more independent with transfer techniques, walking, using prosthetics, and mobility within the facility, home and community.
Speech Therapy – Speech therapy evaluates resident’s understanding and use of language, speech production, voice and swallowing ability.
