Brandywyne’s Rehab Team consists of in-house licensed therapists in the fields of physical, occupational and speech-language therapy. We also offers Home Assessments to residents at discharge to determine any recommendations for a safe transition to home.
Physical Therapy (PT) trains residents in the areas of ambulation, balance, transfers and lower extremity strengthening. Modalities to assist in neuromuscular retraining and pain management are also available.
Occupational Therapy (OT) focuses on assisting residents in returning to their maximum functional level of activities of daily living. OT also assists in positioning and contracture management with splinting.
Speech-Language Pathology (ST) offers services for residents with cognitive, memory, language, voice, fluency and speech deficits, as wells as problems swallowing. ST also assists with augmentative/alternative communication for those residents who require an alternative means of communication, other than traditional speech.
