Physical Therapy

Physical therapy is a type of treatment you may need when health problems make it hard to move around and do everyday tasks. It helps you move better and may relieve pain. It also helps improve or restore your physical function and your fitness level.

The goal of physical therapy is to make daily tasks and activities easier. For example, it may help with walking, going up stairs, or getting in and out of bed. Saber® facility therapists maximize our patient's capabilities to move and function independently within the environment using a variety of tools, techniques and equipment.

Occupational Therapy

The goal of occupational therapy is to help people live and work as independently as possible. Saber® Occupational Therapists use work, self-care, and recreational activities to increase the flexibility and independent function of people with long-lasting health conditions. Occupational therapy can include:

  • Assistance and training in performing activities such as dressing, cooking, and eating.
  • Physical exercises to increase good posture and joint motion, as well as overall strength and flexibility. For example, people with hand and wrist stiffness may be taught to exercise those joints right after doing the dishes, while the joints are warm and looser.
  • Evaluation of your daily living needs and assessment of your home and work environments, with recommendations for changes in those environments that will help you continue your activities.
  • Assessment and training in the use of assistive devices, such as special key holders if hands are stiff, computer-aided adaptive equipment, and wheelchairs.
  • Fitting splints for the hands.
  • The teaching of specific hand stretching and strengthening exercises.
  • Guidance for family members and caregivers.

Speech Therapy

Our Speech Therapy professionals work alongside the rest of our staff to ensure the best possible progress for each of our patients. Treatments include improving neurologically impaired resident's ability to communicate and swallowing disorders.
