Physical Therapy

Physical therapy in a Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) focuses on maintaining, promoting, or restoring lost physical function following a serious injury or illness. Physical therapists in a SNF typically work with physicians and other medical professionals to develop individualized therapy plans that address each resident’s unique medical needs.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy (OT) uses assessments and intervention to help our residents learn to adapt, recover, or maintain meaningful activities after an injury or illness.
