healthcare professionals that are able to access the individual's
deficits and develop treatment programs accordingly.
Speech Therapy (ST), with our licensed therapists, assists
individuals to learn to master new communication skills and to handle
chewing and swallowing difficulties. many individuals learn skills to assist with memory loss.
Occupational Therapy (OT) is the rehabilitation specialty that assists

living. The goal is to assist the individual to regain these
abilities while encouraging independence. These abilities are
often regained using splints and adaptive equipment.
