Occupation therapy is provided by an occupational therapist that is a licensed rehabilitation care professional, which works to restore or improve physical abilities, promote behavioral changes, adapt surroundings, and teaches new skills; the goal is to have the individual achieve her or his best physical and/or mental functioning in daily life tasks. Occupational therapists provide these services on the referral or prescription of a physician, physician assistant, or nurse practitioner.
Speech Therapy uses tools and treats residents for language and cognition skills such as, memory skills, attention, and social interaction. They also work with residents that have chewing and swallowing problems and evaluate meal textures and consistencies.
Restorative Therapy services include both physical and occupational therapies where residents are working with licensed therapists in a goal-based program. Many times this program is offered to restore function following a surgery or illness. After completing the program, many residents move into a maintenance program, tailored to their specific needs.
