Rehabilitation


A skilled team of physical, occupational and speech therapists evaluates the rehabilitation needs of each patient and designs an outcome oriented treatment program. The goal of specialized rehabilitation programs is to help residents attain their maximum potential and restore the abilities and confidence essential to independent living. We offer unique inpatient and outpatient programs with the latest rehab technologies to help our patients reach their maximum level of independence.

Physical Therapy


Physical therapy fosters each patient's independence and enables functional mobility skills following acute or chronic disease processes. This is accomplished through individual evaluations and treatment plans that address deficits through customized interventions.

Occupational Therapy


Occupational therapists work with patients to achieve independence in activities of daily living. Therapists help patients refine their motor skills, hand and upper extremity function, and bladder and bowel control for incontinence.

Speech Therapy


Speech and language therapy helps patients improve their communication skills in speaking, problem solving, reading, writing and verbal expression, and resolving problems with swallowing.
