CathedralCare has a team of highly skilled in-house practitioners through Aegis Therapies. Therapy sessions are available seven days a week to restore health after:
- orthopedic surgery for back, hip, knee, shoulder injuries, or joint replacement
- cardiac surgery or heart-related illnesses
- stroke or other neurological conditions
We utilize specialized clinical protocols to address diseases such as Dementia and Alzheimer’s. In addition, our certified therapists take advantage of the latest therapeutic modalities to treat falls and balance issues, urinary incontinence, dysphagia, and other complex conditions.
During your recovery, physical therapists will create an individualized plan and work with you to:
- restore mobility, balance, gait and confidence
- improve circulation and flexibility
- reduce pain
- help to prevent further falls, injury or illness
Our spacious physical therapy gym is outfitted with state-of-the-art exercise equipment, more than most skilled nursing facilities.
Restoring and enhancing daily living abilities is key to your recovery. Helping you care for yourself again, from dressing and bathing to developing cooking and homemaking skills, is the goal of our occupational therapists. The familiar home-like setting of CathedralCare’s fully-equipped kitchen helps promote your return to independence.
