Each of our residents comes to us with very different and specific rehab needs. Our entire rehabilitation team is committed to create individualized therapy programs that directly answer those specific needs. We encourage the resident to achieve their maximum outcomes of independence and ability.
Physical therapy works toward specific goals of achieving the residents’ highest functional level of independence. We focus on identification, prevention and rehabilitation of individuals with physical impairment and pain. Following evaluation, the therapists develop an individualized treatment program.
Occupational therapists use task-directed activities in the treatment of our residents whose functional abilities, daily activities and independence have been impaired by illness, injury or aging.
Occupational therapy assists our residents in adapting to their social and physical environment by mastering tasks essential for daily living. Our therapists may work with residents who have debilitating arthritic conditions or difficulty bathing, dressing and other activities of daily living. They assist residents with impaired vision and/or hearing to function well in their environment.
Speech and Language Therapy
Speech therapists provide a range of services to assess, educate and train the resident in communication, swallowing and cognition. Treatment programs are designed to help residents affected by stroke, brain injury, dementia, and other neurological disorders. Our therapists also work with residents suffering from hearing impairment, respiratory illnesses, and complex medical conditions.
A positive and uplifting atmosphere is vital to the success of healing, recovery and rehabilitation. West Broward Rehabilitation and Healthcare employs outgoing and friendly professional staff to create social programs and activities to fit the residents needs. We provide a monthly activity calendar to each resident to keep them informed of upcoming events. Friends and families are always welcome to visit and attend our special events.
Social services provide essential information, manage requests and concerns, coordinate appointments, maintain contact and open communication between the facility, families and the residents, help in care planning and discharge planning for each resident. We stand up for resident's rights and strive to make West Broward Rehabilitation and Healthcare their home.
