Which Rehabilitation Therapy Is Right For You?

7/13/2017

At the Heritage Community, we pride ourselves on the excellent rehabilitation therapy we provide. At our Upjohn Rehabilitation & Care Center we make sure we understand each clients goals so that we can make a specialized plan together. That plan may include Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy, or a combination of the three. Let’s explore each of these and discuss their benefits.

Occupational Therapy focuses on basic skills, such as eating, bathing, and dressing, but also can help recover skills such as cooking and cleaning up afterwards. OTs will help you work to increase strength, balance, and endurance, always with safety in mind.

Physical Therapy treatments focus on increasing strength and function. We may use heat, cold, massage, exercise and/or balance activities. We’ll here to help you return to your previous level of physical ability.

Speech Therapy improves more than your ability to communicate. Treatment focuses on both swallowing and communication. Sessions may include exercises that strengthen muscles in the mouth and throat, or structured activities used to increase problem solving and attention skills. We are even able to provide training in the development of alternative means of communication when necessary.

On-site Treatment includes more than therapy, our facilities are designed to care for you, and a spouse, day and night. We care for the whole individual, providing meals, personal laundry, assistance with dressing and moving, as well as many more amenities.

The goal of our treatment is independence and a return to meaningful activities. By providing all of these treatments in one location, 7 days a week, our Rehabilitation Center can help you reach your goals as quickly as possible. We are one of the most highly rated, in-house therapy departments in Kalamazoo. Contact Us Today, we look forward to helping you or a loved one reach their goals.
