Staff member assisting a patient with rehab exercises

Our in-house rehab department has little to no turnover in staff which means that each resident will get to see the same familiar faces each day. This allows our team to build meaningful relationships with each patient. The trust that is built into each relationship allows our patients the ability to grow and strive to do their best. Our goal is to assist each patient in achieving their maximum outcomes of independence and ability. Families are also encouraged to participate in therapy sessions.

Our rehabilitation center is led by a 20+ year relationship with Therapy Network.

Physical Therapy

We offer PT six days a week for your convenience and faster recovery. Physical therapy works toward specific goals of achieving the residents’ highest functional level of independence. We focus on the identification, prevention, and rehabilitation of individuals with physical impairment and pain. Following evaluation, the therapists develop an individualized treatment program.

Areas of treatment focus may include:

  • Increase strength and mobility in the body and lower extremities
  • Increase motor control for a resident who has suffered a stroke
  • Improve coordination, balance, and the ability to walk following a fracture
  • Improve overall strength conditioning, range of motion, and endurance
  • Pain management
  • Teaching proper body mechanics to prevent injury
  • Promoting safety awareness for the well being of the resident

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists use task-directed activities in the treatment of our residents whose functional abilities, daily activities and independence have been impaired by illness, injury or aging.

Occupational therapy assists our residents in adapting to their social and physical environment by mastering tasks essential for daily living. Our therapists may work with residents who have debilitating arthritic conditions or difficulty bathing, dressing and other activities of daily living. They assist residents with impaired vision and/or hearing to function well in their environment.

Areas of treatment focus may include:

  • Functional independence: eating, bathing, toileting, homemaking, cooking, etc.
  • Maintenance of wellness: dressing and grooming
  • Prevention of further disability: home assessments and modifications, adaptive equipment
  • Increasing safety awareness

Speech Therapy

Speech therapists provide a range of services to assess, educate and train the resident in communication, swallowing and cognition. Treatment programs are designed to help residents affected by stroke, brain injury, dementia, and other neurological disorders. Our therapists also work with residents suffering from hearing impairment, respiratory illnesses, and complex medical conditions.

Areas of treatment focus may include:

  • Improving speech and voice clarity
  • Increasing comprehension and verbal expression
  • Improving chewing and swallowing ability
  • Maximizing cognitive language skills: memory, problem-solving, and abstract reasoning
  • Resident and family/caregiver education and training for managing ongoing difficulties with communication, cognition, and swallowing

Residents admitted to the facility that receive nutrition partially or exclusively via a gastrostomy tube are evaluated for potential return to solid foods as appropriate.
