Therapy Services
Our therapy department is made up of licensed Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Speech Therapy professionals. The therapy department also believes in an interdisciplinary team approach for each resident. The therapy department develops a personalized program to build on each resident's skills and goals. Our goal is to use these individualized procedures to help our residents achieve maximum independence.

Physical Therapy provides exercises to improve balance and coordination to increase lower extremity strength and to facilitate safe ambulation. This includes instruction on using walkers, canes, braces, and/or prosthetic limbs. We also have available a variety of modalities to assist with pain control, promote wound healing, and improve range of motion.

Occupational Therapy provides home management skills, upper body strengthening, wheel chair positioning, and training of adaptive equipment to help residents improve their activities of daily living skills (ADLs). ADLs include dressing, bathing, personal hygiene, feeding, and homemaking.

Speech Therapy is available to improve communication skills to help the individual use and understand communication effectively across a variety of settings. As well as utilizing techniques to increase speech production. Speech Therapy may target language skills needed for ADLs individualized to the resident's needs.

Restorative Nursing
Once skilled therapy services have reached a resident's maximum potential, we offer a state approved restorative nursing program, which is individually tailored to meet each resident's needs. Restorative therapy helps our residents retain the progress made while in Physical, Occupational, and or Speech Therapy.
