Christine Broeker, Rehab Secretary, Writes . . . . . . . . . . . . .

   I would like to share with you some information about the Therapy Department.  Services available from the Therapy Department are Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Out Patient Services, and Warm Water Aquatics.  Here is a brief description how each one of these services might be able to help you.

  Physical Therapy – Physical Therapy assists in the rehabilitation to restore normal function after an illness or injury that effect the motor functions of the body.  Physical Therapy can prevent or reduce joint stiffness, restore muscle strength, and retrain joint and muscles to enable a person to achieve their highest level of mobility.

  Occupational Therapy – Occupational Therapy is the use of purposeful activity with individuals who are limited by physical injury, illness, or the aging process to maximize independence, prevent disability, and maintain health.  Occupational Therapy helps patients to confront and solve the problems of daily living, by relearning muscular control and coordination to cope with everyday tasks such as dressing. 

  Speech Therapy – Speech Therapy works with patients to develop or improve communication skills speaking, reading, and writing techniques after a serious illness or physical injury.  Speech Therapy also works with oral motor deficits that may affect the person’s ability to eat.  Speech Therapy works closely with the dietitian in diet modifications to maintain safe, adequate, nutritious, oral intake to maintain health. 

  Out Patient Services – Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy Services are all available (to people in the cottages and community) on an outpatient basis. 

  Arthritis Pool Classes – We offer warm water aquatic group exercises.  They consist of simple range of motion exercises that are done at your own pace.  These classes are led by a qualified instructor and would be a great asset to your health and fitness program.  Our program comes highly recommended by local physicians.  We have recently changed the class times they are as follows.
Monday-Friday         7:30 a.m. –   8:30 a.m.
Monday-Friday         9:15 a.m. – 10:15 a.m.
 Monday-Friday       10:45 a.m. – 11:45 p.m.

  If you have any questions regarding any of these services please contact Christine Broeker at 223-8717 ext. 4201.
