Physical, Occupational & Speech Therapy


Based on your loved one’s physician’s orders, our therapists will perform an evaluation to identify if physical, occupational or speech therapy would be beneficial. The therapy team prepares an individualized plan of care for each resident to achieve their maximum functional level and to move towards recovery.

Physical Therapy

The goal of physical therapy is to help restore and/or improve functionality, reduce pain and increase mobility for better strength and balance. Physical therapy can help make daily tasks easier, give residents a greater sense of independence and improve confidence.

During physical therapy sessions therapists work with residents based on their plan of care. Areas of concentration include:

  • Gait & Balance Training
  • Assistive Device Training
  • Strength Exercises
  • Pain Management
  • Prosthetic Training
  • Neuromuscular Facilitation
  • Ultra Sound
  • E-Stem

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy involves helping people live more independent and productive lives by incorporating meaningful activities to promote participation in everyday life.  It is focused on improving life skills, such as personal grooming and feeding oneself,  which can lead to better quality of life and participation in social activities. Areas of concentration include:

  • Activities of Daily Living
  • Coordination Training
  • Fine Motor Skills Training
  • Adaptive Equipment Training
  • Energy Conservation & Work Simplification Education

Speech Therapy

The ability to communicate effectively is important for everyone, no matter their age. Speech therapy is often necessary when our resident is recovering from the debilitating consequences of a stroke, dementia or a head injury. Working with a speech pathologist can improve a resident’s ability to interact with others, feel more confident and less isolated. Areas of concentration include:

  • Dementia Management
  • Verbal Expression Training
  • Oral-Motor Skills Exercises
  • Comprehension
  • Swallowing Therapy
