Physical Therapy is a form of rehabilitative treatment that uses various exercise techniques and equipment designed to help residents heighten their physical abilities. Like our other therapy services offered, the ultimate goal is to help residents gain independence. We aim to restore normal movement and function, as well as resolving problems like weakness, pain, or lack of motion.

Speech Language Pathology or Speech Therapy is implemented to restore communication skills and swallowing abilities. For many Speech Pathologists, a major part of his or her job is helping people swallow again. A stroke or a brain injury can cause loss of ability to eat, swallow or read and write. Speech Therapy works to reinstate independence in our patients through improved communication, swallowing, reading, writing, and cognitive ability. Therapists work to identify the problem and provide treatment that will enhance the patients ability to regain these lost abilities. Our in-house therapy team provides a stable, day to day therapist to patient relationship for occupational, speech and physical therapy.
Occupational Therapy treats individuals who have physical, developmental, emotional or social deficits that hinder their ability to participate in daily activities. The job of an occupational therapist is to aim to help individuals gain independence in order to carry on daily tasks effectively . Each of our residents are individually evaluated and given a treatment plan designed to fit their unique needs.
