Our therapy professionals are specially trained to provide support to our elders who may have experienced physical and cognitive changes from illness, injury, or other disabling conditions such as stroke, hip fracture, brain injury, and cancer as well as neurological or degenerative diseases. The elders in our care receive the finest in rehabilitation services, including access to physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy from licensed professionals under the supervision of physicians.
