Physical Therapy

Our physical therapy specialists are trained to thoroughly assess patients and administer rehabilitative techniques to reach realistic goals for each individual. These techniques may include gait training, evaluation for equipment, pain control, exercise programs, muscle strengthening or instruction in the use of prosthetic devices. Physical therapy patients are also given a home exercise routine to follow in order to achieve the best results and quickest recovery.

Speech Therapy

Speech therapy consists of treatment programs designed specifically to assist patients suffering from a communication problem due to illness or injury. Our speech pathologists also offer hearing tests and specialized training for patients who have problems swallowing.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy activities are designed to increase the patient’s ability to carry out normal, day-to-day activities, such as feeding, dressing, grooming, bathing and performing household tasks. Occupational therapists also construct adaptive equipment, evaluate homes for architectural barriers, and provide helpful energy conservation and work simplification techniques.

Home Health Aide

The Home Health Aide service is supervised by a skilled nurse and is dependent upon the patient’s individual needs. Home Health aide services are typically provided one to three times per week, with frequency decreasing as the patient’s condition improves. Services provided include: partial to complete bathing, showering assistance, oral hygiene, hair care, shaving, nail care, skin care, light laundry, dressing assistance, assistance with walking or simple exercise programs approved by the nurse, catheter care, monitoring of vital signs, essential errands, and simple meal preparation. 

As a valued patient, you have the right to select the home care agency that will provide the best care for you or a loved one.
