We provide physical, occupational and speech therapy services and also have social work support.
Our team works together so that our residents have increased energy, improved independence and have to make fewer hospital returns over the long term.
The physical therapist is primarily concerned with the individual's mobility - the ability to move safely from place to place.
Motor skills are assessed. They include: range of motion, strength, coordination, balance, endurance, the ability to stand up and the ability to walk,
A program of exercise and activities is created according to each individual's needs. Equipment, such as wheelchairs, walkers and canes, are evaluated, recommended when necessary.
The occupational therapist uses tasks to make independence possible when it comes to the activities of daily living. This may include both physical and mental health needs.
Occupational therapy focuses on each person's ability to feed themselves, dress themselves, practice proper hygiene, coordinate their upper extremities and move themselves from to and from their beds.
As an individual progresses, more complex activities such as meal preparation, money management, school and/or work related skills are evaluated.
