What types of therapy services are offered?
Our therapy program offers physical, occupational, and speech therapies. Physical therapy focuses primarily on independent mobility, strength and balance, use of proper body mechanics, and energy-saving techniques. Occupational Therapy helps participants improve their activities of daily living such as bathing, eating, dressing, self-care, and home management tasks by improving strength and coordination. The Speech/Language therapy program targets functional communication, cognitive skills, and teaches safe swallowing techniques. Programs vary in frequency and intensity. Our goal is to return our participants home safely with the skills they need to continue life on their own terms.
How does a person go about getting started in the program?
All you have to do is call or visit and ask for more information regarding your situation. Our admissions team will work with you initially and then a meeting between our interdisciplinary team takes place to assess goals and map out a plan of recovery. Because a strong support system is so vital to recovery, we encourage family and friends to take part in the plan.
Will I work with the same therapist through my entire program?
Our licensed therapists are warm, caring team members who take a vested interest in the success of each therapy patient. Because of the shared goals and commitment between the participant and therapist, and because our therapy team takes a special interest in the overall well-being of each person, participants often become very close to their therapists and it’s common for us to see them return just to visit even after they’ve returned home.
What happens when I’m done with my therapy program?
Before you leave us, we provide an in-home assessment to ensure a safe transition back into your home and to be sure there are no obstacles to your continued success. If more therapy is required or different areas of need become apparent, our team is available and will welcome the chance to help participants increase their success level.
Are therapy services covered by Medicare and Insurances?
Yes, if you meet their criteria. Typically, it requires a recent stay in a hospital and a few other factors. Our admissions team will assess and help you determine if you qualify.
