Rehabilitation and Sub-acute Care Services
- Physical Therapy concentrates on improving motor control, strength, flexibility, mobility, balance, coordination, and functional endurance. Therapists use skilled techniques to improve walking, stair climbing, and overall mobility skills and assess the need for specialized equipment and assistive devices that may be required to improve self-reliance and safety.
- Occupational Therapy addresses fine motor skills and the performance of activities of daily living (ADLs). In the case where a person has lost the ability to perform an activity due to a specific injury or condition of their hands or arms, therapists can fabricate splints, prescribe an exercise program, as well as perform a variety of hands-on treatment to improve function, reduce pain and increase independence.
- Speech Therapy addresses speech and language skills, as well as swallowing and cognition concerns. The speech therapist can perform studies to identify swallowing problems and in turn, can improve swallowing and adapt the diet for swallowing safety. Speech therapists may also help improve memory and orientation to one’s environment as well as help with higher-level cognitive skills, such as medication management.
