REHABILITATIVE THERAPY

West Meade Place Rehab Therapy

Physical therapy (PT) consists of specialized treatments for illnesses or injuries that limit a person’s ability to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives. Through examination, diagnosis, development of individualized programs and interventions, PT is used to improve a patient’s quality of life. Our therapists also work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs, as well as aiding in the recovery process by developing fitness and wellness-oriented programs to achieve the highest level possible of functional mobility and independence.

Occupational therapy (OT) is the use of assessment and intervention to develop, recover or maintain activities of daily living. Occupational therapists assist people across the lifespan to regain their functionality for everyday

activities and tasks they want and need to do. Through the therapeutic use of the daily activities and tasks, our occupational therapy practitioners help the patients and residents recover from injury, illness or disability to enable them to live life to its fullest.

Speech-Language therapy (SLT) addresses cognitive, linguistic and swallowing deficits. Speech therapy uses exercises to strengthen the muscles of the mouth. The speech-language pathologist may demonstrate how to move the tongue to create specific sounds or to move food during the eating and swallowing process. The speech-language pathologist (SLP) may also teach the patient how to articulate difficult sounds.
