Physical Therapy is a treatment method addressing the treatment, healing and prevention of injuries and disabilities.
The goal is to restore normal movement and function while attempting to resolve problems such as pain, weakness, loss of motion, or lack of coordination.
Our therapy staff understands the many challenges involved in the rehabilitation process, and with their significant experience in rehabilitation, they are able to overcome many of the barriers and produce positive results.
Our therapists place special emphasis on working with the families in conjunction with the resident to ensure the plan of care developed for the resident is individualized and designed to offer the resident the best opportunity for a successful rehabilitation.
Occupational Therapists work with individuals who have physical, developmental, emotional, or social deficits that affect their ability to participate in daily activities.
The therapist helps the resident "relearn" daily living skills such as the ability to get dressed, walk, or perform routine functions.
Our occupational therapy program maximizes the resident's ability to participate in the self-care, work related, leisure, and social activities of daily living.
Residents who have difficulty dressing, bathing, and feeding themselves; who experience memory, attention, or problem-solving deficits that restrict independence and impair safety; or who have limitations in mobility will benefit from occupational therapy.
Many residents who have suffered from strokes, brain injury, Alzheimer's or other neurological disorders often lose the ability to speak and may have difficulty understanding spoken and written material.
Through careful evaluation, planning, and treatment programs, speech-language therapists work at improving a resident's communication skills.
Therapy can stimulate and improve the resident's speaking, reading, writing, comprehension and cognitive ability. Our speech therapy program restores or improves the resident's communication abilities, speech/language deficits, hearing impairments, and/or swallowing abilities.
