At Altoona Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, our therapy team can provide services for both long-term residents and short-term rehab to home. We can perform a home evaluation prior to discharge to ensure all goals have been attained for the safest return home.

  • Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy
    • Physical: Physical therapists work to restore mobility and promote independence. The goal is to move the patient toward greater independence and mobility, either unassisted or with assist devices. The licensed physical therapists focus on improvement, coordination, balance, strength, and endurance.
    • Occupational: Occupational therapists use goal-directed activity to help restore, maintain and improve daily living skills. The goal is to assess personal self-care and daily living skills and to provide modified techniques and/or adaptive devices, as necessary, to assist patients in achieving the skills needed in activities of daily living.
    • Speech: Speech-language pathologists focus on improvements in swallowing, hearing, speech, and language proficiency. The goal is to assess and provide treatment for individuals with disorders of speech, language, swallowing, communication and/or feeding programs to help the patient recover lost skills or develop new ones.
  • ACP Modalities including Electrical Stimulation. These “physical agent modalities” have been used successfully for many years to decrease pain, inflammation, and edema associated with a broad range of prevalent conditions. This proven medical technology also enables therapists to treat more complex conditions, decrease muscle disuse atrophy, enhance soft tissue healing through increased circulation, and improve neuromuscular control in patients with orthopedic and neurological diagnoses.
  • Omnicycle, which is similar to an ordinary exercise cycle, but can be powered by the arms or legs. It also has a special motorized system that senses the amount of help needed to exercise. This allows those with physical limitations to participate in therapeutic exercise activities sooner after illness or injury.
