Our Speech therapists are also equipped to provide vital stim treatment for Parkinson’s, neuromuscular disease and dysphagia treatment. Often applied with other therapies, speech therapy significantly contributes to stabilization and recovery.
Medical Social Services
The medical social worker will assess the psychosocial functioning, environmental and the support needs of patients and families. This may include connecting patients and families to necessary resources and support in the community, supportive counseling or helping to expand and strengthen the network of social support.
For patients who are no longer treatable with medication taken orally, we offer Infusion Therapy in a home setting. Drugs administered intravenously need the expertise of our staff to properly execute. This type of therapy can be used in various cases including cancer medication, antivirals, antibiotics, pain management and hydration for post-surgical patients.
