We offer progressively intensive therapy, according to your tolerance and physical abilities. As your functional status and tolerance for therapy improves, the amount of therapy that you receive will increase.

The process can be a difficult one, but our clinicians bring both expertise and compassion to their work, providing encouragement at every turn.
Family members are an essential part of the process too. We encourage family members to attend therapy sessions and to become active participants in the rehabilitation program. We offer care giver training to ensure that you and your caregivers can function at your highest level of independence while maintaining a safe environment within the home.
