Short Term Rehab

The “in-between-hospital-and-home” step of recovery when you’ve been hospitalized due to accident, illness or surgery. We help a person get stronger and safer before transitioning home.


Long Term Care

For many different reasons, some people choose to or need to, stay and live with us. Depending on each persons’ abilities, we will help our residents with bathing, dressing, toileting, eating and whatever else they may need throughout the day. We will keep all medications and give them to each person as prescribed by the physician.


Speech Therapy

Speech Therapy assesses and treats deficits in speech, language and skills associated with eating such as chewing and swallowing. The speech therapist works with patients to improve their communication skills.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy works with patients to improve balance, coordination, strength, endurance, safety awareness and other functions. The goal of Occupational Therapy is to recover and improve skills necessary in daily living such as bathing, dressing, grooming and toileting.

Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy evaluates and develops a plan using treatment techniques to help patients reach their highest level of independence by improving strength and balance, while reducing pain. Physical therapy seeks to restore functioning and prevent disability which leads to a renewed sense of self confidence.
