QUALITY CARE & OUTCOME
EXPERIENCED, DEDICATED THERAPISTS
We Rehabilitate Lives!
We are dedicated professionals working in a small intimate setting focused on only one thing: Rehabilitation. We rehabilitate lives! This means our staff carries a smaller patient load, spends more time with each patient, and takes the time to do the little extra things that make a big difference. After all, patients spend about 2 weeks with us; we get to know each other by first names, and we all work together.
Rehabilitation is a process of therapy interventions supervised by a specialized physician called a Physiatrist. This medical specialty is focused on patients whose functional abilities- dressing, bathing, walking, and grooming, for instance- have been impaired through accident, injury, or illness. “Activities of Daily Living” are the foundation of every patient’s successful outcome in rehab.
A Physiatrist supervises a staff of therapist: Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Speech Therapist, and medical Social Workers, who help patients learn to overcome their impairments.
Physiatrists also treat medical conditions that might affect a patient’s ability to participate in therapy. Diabetic, cardiac, and respiratory conditions are typical medical issues treated in a rehabilitation setting. We are about embracing possibilities where your rehabilitation is concerned!
What We Do
Interdisciplinary Team Care – is the official medical terminology for the treatment we provide. That means several people work together to restore lost abilities. Each person on the team is a “discipline”.
Physiatrist – The Medical Doctor who provides daily medical supervision of each patient and the treatment team.
Physical Therapy – Physical Therapists are specialized in the improvement of mobility and balance, including the ability to transfer between bed and chair, and bath and toilet.
Occupational Therapy – Occupational Therapists are focused on the “Activities of Daily Living” most of us take for granted until we can no longer perform them. Such activities include: getting dressed, eating, bathing and grooming.
Speech Therapy – Speech Therapists treat communication problems, swallowing dysfunction, problem solving, and cognitive skill re-building.
Medical Social Worker – Social Workers help solve the social needs of the patient and family during a course of treatment and after discharge.
