Areas of Expertise
Areas of Expertise
Our occupational therapists use goal-directed activities to help patients develop the daily living skills needed to fully function in their home, work and community. These daily skills can include self-care, home/work management, functional mobility and leisure pursuits. The primary goal is to improve patients' thinking and perceptual and physical abilities.
Occupational therapists can recommend equipment needs and home modifications, as well as help patients find ways to compensate for permanent loss of function.
Physical Therapy (PT)
Physical therapists are uniquely qualified to evaluate, consult, educate and provide therapies for individuals with a wide range of physical limitations.
The primary goals of physical therapy are to improve strength, endurance, mobility and function and to relieve pain. PT programs are tailored to individual needs so that patients can achieve their maximum physical function.
Our Speech-Language Pathology Department provides full evaluation and treatment for patients experiencing communication difficulties, whether in language, thought, voice and/or speech. In addition, those with hearing loss may receive services to improve communication with their families and significant others.
Our facility is equipped with technology that aids in assessing the needs of the patient, selecting the appropriate treatment, and providing training that enhances the patient's ability to communicate. Speech-language pathology also provides services in the diagnosis and treatment of chewing and swallowing difficulties.
