Signature Services

Harrison Senior Living offers 5 types of facilities:

Independent Living

Just a minor change to your current lifestyle – remove the mowing and snow shoveling and add the conveniences of life’s basic necessities within a few steps of your front door.  The greatest element of this change is the instant camaraderie of your neighbors.  Independent living offers a vibrant lifestyle for those looking to simplify to enjoy the finer things in life.

Assisted Living / Personal Care

Need a little help with your routine? We’re happy to help just enough to maintain the same independence you’ve always enjoyed. Whether with medication, bathing or just getting your day started, the Harrison Senior Living staff is unmatched in this level of hospitality.

Skilled Nursing

It can be difficult to accept changes that can create dependencies in life. Thankfully, Harrison Senior Living nurses fully understand such transitions and are prepared to assist in a compassionate way. We deliver skilled care, tailored to every personality in an environment that feels like home, or at least, the next best thing.

Rehabilitation

Harrison Senior Living offers comprehensive rehabilitation services including physical, occupational and speech-language to fit the specific needs of our residents. Whether an individual requires intensive short-term rehabilitation following an illness or injury or extensive long-term care, our therapists create a personalized treatment plan to address each person’s specific needs, goals and capabilities.

Our rehabilitation programs are staffed by licensed certified therapists who have extensive experience working with older adults. They work closely with other members of the care-giving team so that nursing, dining and rehabilitative services are provided as an integrated approach.

Our newly renovated rehabilitation service areas are equipped with the latest therapeutic equipment. Designated rehabilitation suites offer additional amenities such as flat-screen televisions and telephone service that cater to the short-term stay resident. The benefits of our dedicated unit include specially trained staff, group therapy programs, proximity to the Rehabilitation Service Area and, most importantly, shared goals and challenges among the residents.

Several of our locations also offer outpatient services where individuals may conveniently continue their rehabilitation. This additional service affords the opportunity to work with the same therapists and maintain consistency in the rehabilitation program.

Harrison Senior Living believes in helping individuals to achieve the maximum level of independence possible and our physical, occupational and speech/language therapy programs are provided with this goal in mind. We are committed to helping our residents become physically, socially and emotionally independent.

Physical
Occupational
Speech/Language

Physical therapy is one of the most important elements in a person’s path to recovery. At Harrison Senior Living, physical therapy plays a major part in the rehabilitation programs we develop for our residents and those in the community.

Our physical therapists and physical therapist assistants work with individuals on many skills, from increasing mobility after a stroke to improving muscle tone through personalized exercise programs. We aim to restore patients to their highest possible level of function by applying scientific principles to prevent, identify, alleviate or compensate for neuro-musculoskeletal dysfunctions.

Our therapists evaluate patients and devise individualized therapeutic treatment programs which may include:

  • Therapeutic exercise programs to help increase muscle function, coordination, endurance and mobility
  • Gait and functional training for safety and independence
  • Muscle re-education to regain function
  • Joint and soft-tissue mobilization to increase range of motion
  • The use of thermal and electrical modalities for pain management
  • Ambulation with assistive devices (walker, cane)
  • Wound Care

Physical Therapy Designed for the Entire Community

Designed not just for seniors but for anyone who finds themselves recovering from a severe trauma, the physical therapy program at Harrison Senior Living is specially designed to help patients return to their best possible health.

By offering our physical therapy programs to residents as well as those within our larger communities, Harrison Senior Living can continue its commitment to improving the health and quality of life for not only our residents but for those important to our residents as well.

The ability to perform day-to-day tasks is an essential component of a satisfactory lifestyle. The Harrison Senior Living family of care communities understands this and incorporates this idea into the occupational therapy program provided at our communities.

As part of our continuum of rehabilitation services, Harrison Senior Living skilled occupational therapists have the understanding and expertise that have made our program vital in helping residents and local community members alike regain the highest possible quality of life.

Residential and Outpatient Occupational Therapy for All Ages

The occupational therapy services are available for any age or need. Our proven program has been carefully developed to help those on the rehabilitation path regain the skills they need to live their life as independently as possible.

Though the program is integrated as part of our assisted living and skilled nursing programs, we offer it to both our residents and citizens of the surrounding area. As an outpatient occupational therapy option, we’re able to provide care and service to all who need it.

At Harrison Senior Living, the goal of our occupational therapy program is to help individuals who are learning to re-adapt to their social and physical environment. Therapists enhance patient functionality through:

  • Education and training in areas such as dressing, bathing, eating and grooming.
  • Activities for memory, orientation and cognitive integration
  • Adaptive techniques or equipment to overcome physical disabilities
  • Strengthening and coordination exercises
  • Exercises to reduce the effects of arthritis or other conditions to maintain normal joint movement

Being able to communicate is essential to our life as engaged human beings. For those who have difficulty speaking, swallowing, or any similar functions, speech and language therapy may be the best option for attaining good health and a comfortable lifestyle. Because of this, the speech and language therapy program at Harrison Senior Living was specifically tailored to those working toward safely ingesting food and regaining control of their vital communication functions.

The speech and language therapists at Harrison Senior Living aid people in recovering speech, language, memory, and swallowing functions by addressing any dysfunctions directly. A comprehensive program that can be applied to either our residents or to those seeking outpatient rehabilitation, the speech and language therapy program is specifically tailored to fit each individual’s needs.

Speech and Language Therapy for All Walks of Life

The therapists at Harrison Senior Living evaluate each patient as they arrive, fully assessing them in order to create a treatment plan designed to address their specific needs, focusing on areas such as:

  • Verbal and non-verbal communication including the use of augmentative systems when necessary
  • Oral muscle strength and functioning for speaking and swallowing
  • Swallowing skills and techniques within an individual’s limitations
  • Compensate for word-finding problems
  • Learn listening strategies
  • Overcome swallowing disorders
  • Appropriate diet recommendations
