Our innovative programs emphasize a comprehensive approach, professional care, and optimal recovery.
We offer a tradition of care in a homelike atmosphere while providing 24-hour nursing and rehabilitation services. Each individual is assigned a team of licensed professionals that tailor a customized care and therapy plan specifically for their unique needs. This plan is designed with a goal of achieving maximum results and outcomes. Our treatment team is deeply involved in every aspect of each individual’s health, recovery, productive and active life-style to assure the highest standard of care and services.
Our Physical Therapists focus on our residents regaining strength and balance, achieving optimal mobility skills, improving range of motion, relieving pain and promoting wound care management. They instruct residents in techniques to improve their ability to walk, climb stairs, and increase physical stamina. Professionals assess the need for equipment, such as specialized braces or mobility devices that may be required to improve self-reliance and safety, and assist with ambulation, prevention, and contractures.
Our Occupational Therapists maximize our resident’s independence in performing activities of daily living and self-care skills such as feeding, dressing, bathing, and grooming. They help restore prior abilities lost through illness or injury such as brain, spinal cord, post fractures, and other problems. In addition, our occupational therapists focus on improving hand and arm function as well as upper body strength using various levels of activity. They also emphasize safety training as well as other compensatory techniques to help restore the whole person. They are specialists not only in recommending adaptive equipment but also in making recommendations to help our residents readjust safely to their own environment. This enables our residents to complete their ADLs at their highest functioning level.
