Occupational Therapy
The goal of occupational therapy is to help patients regain functioning skills that may have been reduced by illness, injury or developmental disabilities. After evaluating each patient, an individualized treatment plan is designed to:

  • Increase independence in daily living skills
    such as eating, dressing, bathing, personal
    care and homemaking
  • Increase joint mobility, muscle strength
    and coordination
  • Provide muscle re-education, energy
    conservation and compensatory techniques in
    order to help patients accomplish daily tasks
  • Determine environmental adaptations or
    assistive devices including positioning
  • Splinting to stabilize joints, reduce pain or prevent deformities
  • Provide home environmental assessments

Speech / Language Pathology

The goal of speech pathology is to help patients achieve maximum communication skills and swallowing. Through speech pathology, patients work to:

  • Express thoughts verbally and in writing
  • Enhance swallowing ability with skilled
    evaluation and treatment focusing on
    compensatory strategies and nutritional
    management for adequate and safe eating
  • Adjust to hearing loss
  • Voice therapy

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy can foster patients’ independence and enable functional mobility skills following or in spite of, orthopedic or neurological conditions or injuries. This is accomplished through individualized evaluation and treatment plans that:

  • Improve walking and general mobility
  • Enhance balance skills and fall prevention
  • Increase strength, joint mobility and coordination
  • Recommend necessary assistive devices to
    enhance safe mobility
  • Manage pain
  • Promote wound healing
  • Use heat, ultrasound, water and other modalities
    to enhance progress in treatment programs
  • Provide home environmental assessments that
    ensure safety and function when patients
    return home
