Short-Term Rehabilitation

If your goal is to return home quickly, Grace Health & Rehab Center has just the solution for you!

Returning home immediately following hospitalization is not always the safest option.

Our experienced staff offers in-house physical, occupational, and speech therapy for those with orthopedic, neurological and other diagnoses. In addition to physical strength, range of motion, balance, and activities of daily living, our team of therapists will address cognitive, memory, social, and emotional needs that derive from injury or illness.

Our rehab-to-home program offers you with a comfortable, home-like environment while preparing you for discharge to home. You can dine in the comfort of your room, or for those looking for more entertainment, you are always encouraged to visit the main dining room.

Premier In-House Therapy

Physical Therapy

Physical Therapy is a type of treatment prescribed when injury or illness makes daily tasks difficult or painful. Your physician may suggest Physical Therapy for a range of issues, including back pain, tendon or ligament problems, arthritis, and other illnesses and injuries. Your treatment plan includes exercises along with personal goals.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy helps individuals overcome illness, injury, or psychological problems in order to live independent, productive, and satisfying lives. Through work, self-care, and recreational activities, Occupational Therapists help patients increase independent function and get back to daily activities.

Speech Therapy

Speech Therapy evaluates and remediates any speech, language, cognitive and swallowing difficulties (dysphagia). A Speech Language Pathologist will develop a plan of care aimed at increasing the individual’s ability to communicate and help deal with any issues related to swallowing deficits, including tube feed weaning.
