We offer daily therapy as needed for our residents that need short term rehabilitation. The programs are designed to help our patients safely regain and renew their optimal levels of strength, stability, and independence. Our rehabilitation services include:

  • Physical Therapy: By utilizing various techniques and exercises, Rocky River Garden’s physical therapists help individuals recover from injuries, surgeries, or medical conditions that affect their mobility and quality of life. Through targeted assessments and personalized treatment plans, physical therapy aims to improve strength, flexibility, balance, and endurance. Therapists may employ manual techniques, therapeutic exercises, electrical stimulation, or heat and cold therapies to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and enhance tissue healing. Additionally, they guide patients in relearning movement patterns, correcting posture, and regaining independence in activities of daily living. By focusing on individualized care, physical therapy optimizes recovery, enhances functional abilities, and fosters a faster return to a fulfilling and active lifestyle. Our facility is equipped with state-of-the-art therapy equipment specifically designed for therapeutic exercise to help you recover from hip and knee replacement, stroke recovery, and more.
  • Speech Therapy: Speech therapy aims to improve speech clarity, language skills, cognitive abilities, and swallowing function. Speech-language pathologists assess and develop customized treatment plans based on the individual’s specific needs. They use a variety of techniques and exercises to target speech production, language comprehension, and expression. Additionally, speech therapy may involve the use of augmentative and alternative communication devices to enhance communication for individuals with severe speech impairments. By working collaboratively with other healthcare professionals, our speech therapists have seen many positive outcomes.
  • Occupational Therapy: Our occupational therapists focus on helping individuals regain and develop skills necessary for daily living and meaningful activities. Each treatment plan is individualized and strives to improve functional independence and enhance overall quality of life. Occupational therapy interventions may include teaching adaptive techniques, providing assistive devices, and modifying the environment to facilitate participation in activities such as self-care, work, and leisure. Therapists also address cognitive impairments, sensory processing difficulties, and psychosocial challenges to promote optimal engagement and well-being. By empowering individuals to perform essential tasks and pursue their passions, occupational therapy promotes independence, confidence, and a successful transition back to their desired roles and routines.

Social Services

Our caring social services team offers a range of services aimed at addressing the unique needs and challenges faced during the rehabilitation process. We can assist residents and families in understanding and navigating the complex healthcare system, coordinating care plans, and accessing necessary resources and support services. Social workers also provide emotional support, counseling, and guidance to residents and families, helping them cope with the physical and emotional adjustments that come with rehabilitation. If a resident needs a medical appointment off grounds during their stay we can help book that appointment for them, arrange transportation, and will even accompany them to an appointment (upon request). Our team can also facilitate family meetings, provide information on community resources and support groups, and assist with discharge planning to ensure a smooth transition back home or to a long-term care facility. We are also there for families and residents after they leave our facility and can help arrange continuing services, therapies, and medical evaluations.
