Our rehab team, composed of physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy, works directly with residents to achieve rehab goals to get back on track. Rehabilitation can assist residents in regaining their highest level of functioning. Treatments are offered throughout the week at our well equipped facility by licensed professional therapists.
Our rehab center features a mix of private and semi-private rehab suites. Our short-term rehabilitation suites are equipped with flat screen TVs, telephones, daily newspaper services, state-of-the-art therapy equipment and the services of our physical, occupational and speech therapists.
As one of Delaware's largest rehab gyms, equipment such as the Wii-Habilitation station, treadmill, stationary bikes and a functional kitchenette area are available for residents to practice Activities of Daily Living following a recent hospitalization or surgery.
Our team develops comprehensive, individualized care plans to maximize residents physical, social, and emotional independence, safely and quickly.
Our goal for residents is simple: to help individuals to live dignified and optimally independent lives. We tailor each individual's therapy plan to his or her unique needs.
Our Physical Therapists work with residents in training for increased mobility, gait stability, posture and positioning. Exercise programs are implemented to increase muscle function, coordination and endurance. Individualized treatment may also include joint and soft tissue mobilization to increase range of motion, wound care, and pain management. Fall prevention and education is also provided.
Our Occupational Therapists work with residents in education and training in such areas as dressing, bathing, eating, grooming, and other activities of daily living. Adaptive techniques or equipment to overcome physical barriers can be recommended. Strength and coordination exercises are implemented to increase more independence in daily activities.
Our Speech-Language Pathologists address communication and swallowing dysfunction. Treatment plans can include recovery of speech, language, and memory skills. Activities for memory, orientation, and cognitive abilities can be implemented. Oral muscle strength and functioning required for speaking and swallowing as well as appropriate/safe diet recommendations can be designed for individual needs.
If you or a loved one have been recently hospitalized and feel you may benefit from therapy services, Harbor Healthcare and Rehabilitation is here for you.
