We seek to maximize the quality of life for our long-term care population and offer them specialized restorative services. Our goal is to maintain or improve each resident's highest functional ability.
Each of our residents comes to us with very different and specific rehab needs. Our entire rehabilitation team is committed to create individualized therapy programs that directly answer those specific needs. We encourage the resident to achieve their maximum potential of independence and ability.
Our physical therapy team works toward specific goals of achieving the resident's highest functional level of independence. Physical therapy focuses on identification and rehabilitation of individuals with physical impairment and pain, as well as future injury prevention. Following evaluation, our experienced physical therapists develop an individualized treatment program. The goal is to achieve safety in a variety of areas.
Occupational therapy assists our residents in adapting to their social and physical environment by mastering tasks essential for daily living. Our occupational therapists may work with residents who have debilitating arthritic conditions or those with difficulty bathing, dressing and other activities of daily living. They assist residents with impaired vision and/or hearing to function well in their environment.
Our speech therapists provide a range of interventions to assess and help restore abilities in the areas of communication, swallowing and cognition. Treatment programs are designed to help residents affected by stroke, brain injury, dementia, and other neurological disorders. Our professionals also work with residents suffering from hearing impairment, respiratory illnesses, and complex medical conditions.
A positive and uplifting atmosphere is vital to the success of healing, recovery and rehabilitation. Highland Park Skilled Nursing and Wellness Centre employs outgoing and friendly professional staff to create social programs and activities to fit the residents' needs. We provide a monthly activity calendar to each resident to keep them informed of upcoming events. Friends and family are always welcome to visit and attend our special events.
