Our physical therapists examine each individual and develop a plan using treatments that promote the ability to move, reduce pain, restore function, and prevent injury. We use a variety of equipment and techniques to help patients achieve their goals including electrotherapy and ultrasound. We work closely with the family members and other health care providers to ensure patients’ outcomes are optimal.
Our Occupational Therapists evaluate and treat patients with difficulty performing activities of daily living, which may have been affected by an injury or illness.
We help our patients develop function as well as an increased sense of competency and personal happiness. We want our patients to live life to its fullest, whether it is helping short-term residents regain the skills they need to return home to enhancing the lives of long-term patients. For residents with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, we focus on adapting activities throughout the stages of the illness. We work to keep the patient as functional and as independent as possible, providing them with dignity and enhancing their quality of life. Depending on the stage of a disease, a therapist will establish treatments and goals so that clients achieve their highest level of function for as long as possible.
Our speech therapists help our patients with communication impairments, cognitive-communication, swallowing, or voice problems caused by stroke, traumatic brain injury, or other forms of neurological conditions or trauma. The treatment usually involves re-learning the ability to use speech muscles, and to communicate through guided practice. Speech therapy may involve the evaluation and treatment of language skills such as:
- Verbal expressions
- Reading and writing skills
- Auditory comprehension
Speech skills such as:
- Articulation (precision/coordination)
Cognitive-linguistic skills such as:
- Problem solving
