Rehabilitative Therapies

Customized Care. Geriatric Specialists.

Many chronic care patients receive rehabilitation services provided by skilled therapists who specialize in treating older adults. Each Hebrew Rehabilitation Center patient receives a thorough evaluation of current abilities and an assessment of any impairments that might be impacting quality of life.

Patients who can benefit from rehabilitative therapies will receive an individualized program. The care team works closely with each patient to set appropriate goals, whether it’s feeling more confident using a walker or wheelchair, gaining stamina to enjoy activities, or improving speech to allow for better communication.

Family members and caregivers are an important part of rehabilitative therapy, too. Throughout the process, our care team will keep you informed about your loved one’s progress and share ways that you can be involved in their treatment program.
