Rehabilitation is a key focus at our facilities.  We offer the following therapies, techniques and programs to assist the patient on their road to recovery.

Physical therapy can foster each patient’s independence and enable functional mobility skills following orthopedic or neurological conditions or injuries. Innovative techniques are used to restore maximum function and minimize pain. Improving range of motion, strength, coordination and muscle control will bring you closer to your functional goals.
Occupational therapy focuses on achieving greater independence in the activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing and eating following an illness or injury. To promote maximum function and mobility, our therapists use rehabilitation techniques and train residents in the use of specialized equipment.
Speech-language therapy helps patients improve their communication skills in speaking, problem solving, reading, writing and verbal expressions. Therapists also provide evaluation of and treatment for a variety of swallowing disorders.

PALLIATIVE CARE
The need for palliative care is a growing and necessary role within skilled nursing facilities due to the aging population served and the increased clinical complications that are usually presented with this delicate diagnosis. Planning, implementation and evaluation of the resident is done by an interdisciplinary team. Nursing coordinates the plan of care and collaborates closely with the interdisciplinary team, family and resident as needed. Palliative Care is designed to provide clinical and spiritual support to both the resident and the resident family not only in the final days of life, but may also be appropriate with the diagnosis of a terminal condition requiring in depth education. Emphasis is placed on identification and treatment of primary symptoms that can respond to treatment, management of physical, psychological, psychosocial, spiritual needs, and expression of grief of the resident and family. Pain management is an integral part of care.
