Physical Therapy

Our Physical Therapists specialize in the preservation, enhancement, or restoration of movement and physical function.  Therapists strive to manage/reduce pain and improve and restore mobility.  Physical Therapists teach residents how to prevent or manage their conditions so that they will achieve long-term health benefits

Occupational Therapy

Our Occupational Therapists specialize in teaching residents how to participate in activities of daily living in order to promote independence and the highest level of functioning.  Occupational Therapists provide a comprehensive evaluation of a resident’s home and make recommendations for adaptive equipment and training in its use.  They also provide guidance and education for family members and caregivers.

Speech Therapy

Speech-Language Pathologists work to prevent, assess, diagnose, and treat speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication, and swallowing disorders.  Speech Therapy helps to improve cognitive aspects of communication including listening, reading, writing, and language interpretation.
