Home exercise programs are prescribed between appointments and upon discharge.
Our Speech Therapists (ST) screen, assess, identify and treat speech, language, voice, fluency, swallowing and feeding problems. They provide exercise programs, education, and advice for communication and swallowing disorders related to other health conditions.

Our Occupational Therapists (OT) understand how illness, injury, disability or challenging life events can affect a person’s ability to do the everyday things that are important to patients/individuals such as dressing, bathing, feeding and participating in hobbies. They assess and instruct those with disabilities and functional deficits in the use of adaptive equipment; including wheelchairs, orthotics, and aids for eating and dressing so the patient/individual may be as productive and independent as possible.
