When you’ve lost the ability to do basic tasks—walk, eat, or bathe independently—the frustration can be enormous.
You need to regain your independence, quickly and effectively.
Our seasoned therapists have only one goal: get you back to yourself, safely. In a rehab gym open 6 days a week, their single-minded dedication yields an astoundingly high turnover—and we’re thrilled to see our residents head home the minute they can.
THE REHAB GYM
In our spacious rehabilitation room, compassionate therapists service residents with the most current skills and equipment.
COMING SOON—APRIL 2018!
2,200 square foot gym for dedicated use by Morris Park’s rehab residents.
Your life, your skills.
How do we create customized rehab plans? Our therapists conduct a comprehensive intake with each patient and family, asking questions like: where are you experiencing challenge? What bothers you most? And which skills will you need to thrive at home?
You can expect intensive rehab at Morris Park: residents get therapy 6 days a week, in a gym that’s open Monday - Saturday.
Residents being weaned off artificial life-support or suffering from pulmonary disorders require specialized rehabilitation. Our licensed respiratory therapists offer an assortment of treatments, including oxygen therapy, tracheostomy care, BiPap/CPAP therapy, and oral suctioning.
Our social service professionals are in constant contact with the rehab team. From the initial intake to the final discharge, communication is plentiful and steady, allowing our social workers to ensure your comfort throughout the process—and ease your transition back home.
