Outpatient Therapy Services
Outpatient Occupational, Physical and Speech therapy services focus on assisting clients to achieve their highest level of independence and functional ability.
Our Occupational, Physical and Speech therapy services are specifically geared toward older adults living within the community. We specialize in treatment for seniors faced with functional limitations as a result of neurologic, orthopedic or medical challenges, who are looking to enhance their quality of life.
Our rehabilitation team of specially trained occupational, physical and speech therapists provides a comprehensive approach to the unique care needs of seniors. Staff members are certified in the area of geriatrics. Our therapists perform a comprehensive evaluation. After the initial assessment, therapists design a customized program to enable our clients to attain their personal goals. These individualized programs are updated throughout the course of rehabilitation with the safest and most cutting edge techniques. Therapists address pain management, range of motion and flexibility, muscle strengthening, balance and coordination, energy conservation, tasks analysis and other pertinent areas of health and well-being. We pride ourselves in offering our clients a unique client-to-therapist relationship.
