speech-therapyWindemere’s Rehabilitation Department is a key aspect of a resident care. Our dedicated team  therapists tailor individual programs to maximize and strengthen an individual’s level of independence. They help train our 24/7 staff to carry out individualized plan of care for residents.

With the goal of improving the quality of life for our residents, we offer Physical, Occupational, and Speech-Language Pathology services.  Believing our resident’s recovery depends not only on their personalized treatment, but in their active participation, our therapy team motivates each resident to succeed. They create maintenance programs to ensure maximum quality of life and independence.

On our serene harbor campus we create a unique and supportive environment for a positive recovery process; a fully equipped gym with parallel bars and a stocked kitchenette to practice ADL skills. We employ innovative therapies to inspire healing such as our bioMat, nustep, ipads, and brain fitness programs. We also engage a wheelchair specialist to adapt and customize resident’s equipment when needed.

While working closely with all members of the medical team, we never lose sight of the partnership between residents, their loved ones, and our caregivers. We also provide residents and their loved ones with education focused on building and maintaining the necessary skills to return to their home environment.
