Riddle Village recognizes that a strong rehabilitation program is paramount when it comes to our residents’ well-being. Our goal at Riddle Village is to always ensure our residents are the best that they can be. This means we strive to keep our residents healthy and strong and to face possible medical setbacks head on with a strong rehabilitation program to get them back on their feet and ready to enjoy their lives!
Whether you are living independently and recovering from an injury or you are in our skilled nursing following surgery, there are many exercises you can do during supervised sessions with trained professionals to help increase your mobility and manage your daily tasks. We are proud to offer our residents physical, occupational, speech therapy services, provided by Rehabcare Group, creating a partnership that’s one of the finest therapy programs in our industry for over 10 years.
Physical, Speech and Occupational Therapy Programs
Therapy services include physical, occupational and speech therapy. These services are available to residents in our healthcare center, as well as our independent residents when necessary. Riddle Village also offers short term therapy through Medicare A and B and numerous HMO/PPO plans to individuals who do not reside at our community, but may need rehabilitation before returning home.
Physical therapy is offered to residents who need improvement in mobility and strength. These sessions can help with surgery recovery, joint pain or diseases that impact movement, such as Parkinson’s. Speech therapy focuses on regaining the ability to speak clearly and concisely, often after a stroke or head injury. The goal of occupational therapy is to increase independence and improve quality of life. If there are cognitive issues, occupational therapy can help by focusing on fine motor skills, such as dressing, cooking, and cleaning. Residents typically experience a combination of all three types of therapy to help them lead a full and healthy life.
“We help our residents achieve the highest functional levels they can through activities that are both challenging and fun, then teach them how to maintain these through a home program. A fellow therapist once told me – I never met a person I couldn’t help.” – Charles Munson, PT, Director of Rehabilitation Services
In addition to our full-service therapy department, located in the Monticello house, we offer an outpatient therapy program designed to coincide with our state-of-the-art fitness center.
The compliments and appreciation for these services are never ending and we are proud of our accomplishments in this area.
Outpatient Therapy Services
For those not in short-term rehabilitation, but in need of therapy services, we offer outpatient therapy connected to our state-of-the-art fitness center. Residents can set scheduled sessions with therapists to continue to work on gaining strength through new techniques and exercises using our equipment that is available 24/7 to our residents.
Outpatient therapy sessions concentrate on exercises to help regain strength and balance. Additionally, residents work with a physical therapist in the fitness center to not only build their strength during therapy, but to learn how to continue with a home exercise program after their therapy has ended.
“The exercises that I was given were pertinent and they worked. When I had my knee work done, I did the exercises they suggested, and it strengthened the muscles around them and now I don’t need to have surgery. I’m currently going to therapy for my shoulder, and besides not having to go off campus, it’s also nice that I can just do any exercises that I have to right at the gym.” – George, Riddle Village Resident
Newly Renovated Rehabilitation Center
Our rehabilitation center located in our Skilled Nursing underwent a complete renovation with updates that allow us to continue to offer our residents motivating spaces with premium amenities to ensure a successful recuperation. Each inpatient therapy room received new flooring, new wall coverings, window treatments, cabinetry, and work stations, which are where the therapists document and the residents participate in therapeutic tasks targeting the hand, arm, and shoulder. These stations also include specific equipment such as ultrasound, electric stimulation, diathermy, hot and cold therapy, arm and leg bikes, stairs, parallel bars, mats, and weights.
Our therapy team is not just reactive in their approach. They are also proactive in providing educational sessions and working with our Fitness Coordinator to create classes that can help with balance, physical conditioning and anything else that can help residents live a more full and active life.
We strive to provide the highest level of quality care to all who choose us for rehabilitation services. Our rehabilitation team is always available to work with individuals to help them on their way to a full and vigorous life. Contact Riddle Village to learn more about our therapy services today.
