Our Rehabilitation Program restores hope:
We have developed comprehensive rehabilitation programs—and can help you, or the one you care for, achieve the highest level of functional skills possible.
Physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech-language pathologists work together as a team to help residents reach their goals. We also invest in a variety of state-of-the-art equipment to enable therapists to use up-to-date treatment techniques.
No matter what type of therapy is required, we encourage you and your family to be actively involved in setting and achieving personal rehabilitative goals.
Regain movement with Physical Therapy:
Physical therapists use a number of advanced techniques to help you or a family member regain muscle strength and improve coordination following an injury or illness.
They teach safe ways to climb stairs, negotiate curbs and ramps, and move from a bed to a chair. Our residents can learn to walk again with appropriate support equipment, to properly maneuver a wheelchair, or to use an artificial limb. Physical therapy can also help control or alleviate both acute and chronic pain.
Occupational Therapy teaches day-to-day skills:
Occupational therapy can help you, or that person close to you, relearn the daily activities of life, including personal hygiene, meal preparation, homemaking and financial management.
Occupational therapists teach residents how to use the right techniques and equipment to complete these tasks. They also work on cognitive, musculoskeletal and mobility concerns, including adaptive seating devices to prevent muscle deformities and maintain healthy skin. Occupational therapists also help people with memory-attention or problem-solving deficits.
Overcome language disorders with Speech Therapy:
Following a stroke or other injury, speech-language pathologists work one-on-one with you or your loved one to regain functional communication in a variety of ways—speaking, listening, writing, reading, gesturing, etc. Establishing successful communication can dramatically improve recovery.
Other activities provided by the speech-language pathologist to improve daily interaction include swallowing therapy, methods for communicating with the hearing impaired and cognitive training.
