Rehabilitation Therapy

Therapies That Restore Confidence

What do you do when your loved one is still recovering from surgery or an illness, but insurance no longer covers the rehabilitation therapy they need to recover? Partners in Care can help extend those services and deliver the exact rehabilitation therapies required to help your loved one regain strength and mobility.

Our highly trained physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech-language pathologists combine the latest medical knowledge with hands-on care to make sure you receive the exact treatment you need. Your therapists will help you develop goals for your recovery, and will work with your doctors and other members of your care team to help you meet your rehabilitation goals at home, in the hospital, at an in-patient rehabilitation facility, or at a nursing facility.

A stroke can be a life-challenging experience that calls for a combination of rehabilitation therapies to restore fine motor skills, speech, and mobility. Partners in Care rehabilitation therapists have special expertise in post-stroke therapy. We’ll draw up a specific client profile on the severity of your stroke, to help you regain your independence in the comfort of your own home.

Physical Therapy

When your mobility is restricted, the things you take for granted—moving in and out of bed, or simply standing up—become overwhelming. Your physical therapists can work with you to improve your strength, flexibility, coordination, and balance with specific exercises. Physical therapy can help with:

  • Ensuring you’re carrying out post-operative instructions after surgery
  • Instructing you how to use equipment such as walkers, canes, wheelchairs, and other assistive devices correctly
  • Teaching you ways to conserve energy to limit strain on joints and muscles, and pacing yourself to avoid exhaustion
  • Training on how to safely move from bed or chair, walk on level ground, and navigate stairs

Speech Therapy

Your ability to speak, eat or drink, and communicate can be affected by a stroke, a brain injury, or an illness that affects the muscles that control swallowing and forming words. Your speech-language pathologist can customize a treatment plan based your diagnosis to help with everyday situations by:

  • Creating exercises to strengthen muscles of the mouth, neck, and face to avoid problems like coughing or choking and to produce clearer speech
  • Teaching strategies for communication, including making sounds and expressing thoughts nonverbally, that can reduce frustration
  • Helping your caregivers learn methods to improve communication and social interactions
  • Demonstrating techniques to help you understand and process what people say to you
  • Showing you ways to read, write, perform calculations, and remember things

Occupational Therapy

Injury, chronic illness, and sometimes a stroke can impair your fine motor skills. Occupational therapy can help you regain manual dexterity so you can perform actions that are an important part of daily routines, such as eating, dressing, bathing, and getting out and about. Your occupational therapist can help by:

  • Teaching you exercises to increase motor, visual, cognitive, and perceptual skills
  • Identifying ways to adapt movements so you can complete tasks like buttoning a shirt or cutting food
  • Demonstrating techniques and using tools to help with day-to-day activities
  • Educating caregivers on ways to keep you safe
