PHYSICAL THERAPY SERVICES
Some of our residents may benefit from the services of a physical therapist. Our physical therapy program addresses a wide range of diagnoses. A physical therapist will evaluate a resident for special needs and create an individualized treatment program to maximize endurance, strength, coordination, balance, range-of-motion, and independence in mobility and to decrease pain. Continued re-assessment and flexible plans of care allow our therapists to assist each resident in attaining their maximum potential for independence whether in a care-setting or upon return home.
