Physical Therapy (PT)
Whether the individual’s problem is a result of injury or disease, the role of a physical therapist is to help him or her realize their optimum ability to function. Physical therapists also work with individuals to prevent a loss of mobility with fitness and wellness-oriented programs that promote healthier and more active lifestyles. They can play an especially important role for those experiencing:
• Recovery from a fall
• Difficulty walking
• Suffering from joint or back pain
• Recovery from a Hip or Knee Replacement Surgery, heart failure, or stroke
• Any noticeable decline in function
Occupational Therapy (OT)
Occupational Therapy focuses on an individual’s ability to perform a broad range of everyday life activities. OT promotes independence by improving the skills required to perform these activities and/or teaching alternative ways to accomplish them. A physician’s referral is required in order to receive OT. Based on a thorough evaluation, the therapist will create a customized treatment plan designed to improve skills and maximize functional abilities based on priorities and personal goals. The therapist will consider a person’s physical, psychological, and social well-being, as well as environmental factors when developing a plan of care and treatment. Occupational therapy helps individuals regain day to day skills such as dressing and feeding.
SPEECH AND LANGUAGE THERAPY HELPS REGAIN INDEPENDENCE
Speech and language therapy can help individuals improve breathing, speaking, or swallowing functioning. Speech therapy focuses on the ability to understand and use words. Speech therapists may help individuals who suffer from:
• A stroke • A heart attack • Difficulty swallowing • Difficulty speaking
We also have Physician group partnerships that allow you to have a physician that is available for phone consultations or that can come and visit you if you require care. This is a great option for those who cannot leave to go to a medical appointment easily or safely. They can assist with acute illnesses, setting up therapy services or with care coordination. Please speak with the Executive Director if you have any further questions.
