Therapy

Therapy is designed to teach skills and strategies that lead to lasting results. We focus our session on what you want to be able to do and what will allow you to regain the functioning needed for participation in your daily activities. We approach therapy in a very functional manner, using materials in therapy that are personally relevant to the individual.  We follow a life participation approach by focusing on activities that are important to the individual. Our therapists also identify environmental barriers and develop solutions for success. We teach the individual effective strategies to improve their communication, cognition, or memory for everyday life activities and beyond. We help people transition back to school or work after suffering a stroke or head injury by addressing very specific skills they need to return successfully. 

 

Family and/or care partners are encouraged to observe and participate in therapy sessions throughout the therapy process. Training is provided on recommendations, considerations, and strategies for effective communication and memory at home and out and about in the community. Education is provided regarding specific and individualized home practice programs. Family and care-partners are trained on the importance of using personally relevant graphics to support their loved one's needs and increase success with communication and memory/cognition for everyday activities. We always dedicate time to make sure everyone has the answers and information they need.

Cognitive-Communication Wellness Program

Our goal is to ensure our clients continue to be successful once discharged from skilled therapy services. We provide comprehensive education and training throughout the entire therapy process for continued home practice. Daily home practice is essential to maintaining the progress made in therapy and for preventing decline and regression in skills. Some clients are successful in completing their home program independently and others benefit from additional support. For clients who struggle with home practice, we find that ongoing coaching and accountability check-ins are beneficial. Ongoing coaching and accountability check-ins are offered under our wellness program. This is not covered by insurance and is a private pay service. Wellness sessions are scheduled as needed. Sessions are 30 minutes on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly schedule. 

We accept Medicare Part B
