Physical Therapy Rehabilitation Services

Physical therapy is one of the most essential elements in a person’s path to recovery. At Harrison Senior Living, physical therapy plays a major part in the rehabilitation services 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 rehabilitation services to residents and 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.

As part of Harrison Senior Living’s comprehensive rehabilitation program, Harrison Senior Living offers this physical therapy program in the Georgetown, Snow Hill, and Christiana[1]  facilities.

Occupational Therapy Rehabilitation Services

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 in our communities.

As part of our continuum of rehabilitation services, Harrison Senior Living’s skilled occupational therapists have the understanding and expertise to make 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

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 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 can provide care and service to all who need it.

At Harrison Senior Living, our occupational therapy rehabilitation service aims 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.

Harrison Senior Living offers this occupational therapy program in the Georgetown, Snow Hill, and Christiana facilities.

Speech / Language Therapy Rehabilitation Services

Being able to communicate is essential to our life as engaged human beings. For those with difficulty speaking, swallowing, or 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 our residents or those seeking outpatient rehabilitation services, the speech and language therapy program is specifically tailored to fit each individual’s needs.
