The goal of our rehabilitation team is to enable folks to safely return home and re-engage in activities of daily living as efficiently as possible. Our interdisciplinary team of physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech/language therapists are specially trained in working with a senior population and understand the unique needs and challenges the elderly face. Each individual rehabilitation program is designed to maximize functional independence in the shortest period possible with the goal of returning the patient to his or her prior level of function. Therapists work together with the patient and the patient’s family to achieve stated goals, and progress is monitored at our weekly therapy meetings. Individual care plans are changed as needed to ensure optimum results. Specific treatment programs for people in need of temporary care after surgery or hospitalization are also available.

- Electrical Stimulation
