Short Term Rehabilitation
Our physical, occupational, respiratory, and speech therapy programs are designed to meet the needs of the individuals we serve. Therapy is definitely a necessary and beneficial service that allows our residents to function as independently as possible.
Our goal is to work with the patient and the family to ensure a smooth transition to the home, residential care, or long term care environment. Special attention is paid to achieving an optimal outcome by establishing individualized treatment plans for each patient.
The rehabilitation team works closely with the patient’s physician, nursing staff, social services, as well as other facility staff to provide a coordinated approach to care. Our team is constantly re-evaluating the patient to take in to account the patient’s changing needs in order to provide continuous and successful care, meeting the patient’s routine and complex needs.
Injury and illness can take a toll on the body's strength and mobility. Physical therapists can help patients regain strength, coordination and balance, and reach specific goals, such as independent movement, wheelchair mobility or walking.
Everyday activities such as cooking or getting dressed can be difficult for people who have been seriously injured or who suffer from a debilitating disease. If a patient needs assistance in regaining independence in daily living skills, our occupational therapists can help.
For people with learning disabilities, who have suffered strokes, dementia, hearing loss, or other illnesses, communication can be very difficult. If you need assistance with speaking, thinking, or swallowing, our speech therapists can help.
