Our Rehab Team
Our rehab team consists of physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech-language pathologists, as well as the patient and his/her family.
Our Mission At RehabCare, we believe that rehabilitation gives individuals who have experienced debilitating illness or injury both opportunity and hope for restoring their functional independence. It is our mission to help patients return to their optimum level of function, in a homelike environment, so that they may have a better quality of life.
Movement is the main focus for physical therapy. This includes bed mobility, transferring from the bed to a chair or toilet, walking, using stairs and/or wheelchair mobility. Physical therapists may instruct patients on the use of a walker or cane, maneuvering a wheelchair with one hand or on safe transfer techniques. They also work with patients to decrease pain and improve strength, endurance, balance and range of motion.
Occupational therapists help patients become more independent by teaching them new ways to perform life tasks such as making breakfast, dressing or simply brushing their hair. Occupational therapists also teach patients how to protect their muscles and joints and increase their strength and endurance. When necessary, they provide training in the use of adaptive equipment, such as reachers and long-handled shoehorns.
Speech-language pathologists evaluate and treat patients for hearing, language, communication and swallowing disorders. The focus of speech therapy is improving speech-language expression, comprehension, oral motor skills for accurate speech production and strategies for safe eating.
