The Rehabilitation Therapy Center at Cedar Village provides expert care with individualized treatment plans. Our physical, occupational, and speech therapists are on-staff at Cedar Village, and specialize in treating people 50 and better. Patients have access to the latest treatment plans and newest technologies to meet their unique needs.

The Aquatic Therapy Center is state of the art, including two warm water small pools for individual therapy and a large warm water pool for group work. Resident programming, like Water Tai Chi and Water Aerobics, are also held in the Aquatic Therapy Center. Because of the bouyancy of the water, warm water therapy is a powerful tool for recovery, making exercise possible without strain on the joints.

Whether it is transitional care between the hospital and home, or out-patient therapy, patients and therapists work together to rebuild strength, balance, flexibility and endurance with the top-priority to heal faster, feel better, and return the patient to the life they love.

Rehabilitation Therapy at Cedar Village enhances the comprehensive level of inpatient and outpatient care for our residents and individuals of the community recovering from illness or injury. The therapists at our state of the art therapy gym at Cedar Village address each individual need of the patients they see, including speech, physical, and occupational therapies. The Activities of Daily Living (ADL) room and therapy kitchen are just two of the many rooms within the Rehabilitation Therapy Department dedicated to re-teaching patients daily routine skills, like making the bed or baking brownies. The Aquatic Therapy center’s state of the art equipment includes two warm water small pools for individual therapy and a larger warm water pool for group work and individual therapy workouts. The Aquatic Therapy Center also hosts resident programming, such as Tai Chi. Because of the bouyancy of the water, warm water therapy is a powerful tool for recovery, making exercise possible without strain on the joints.

Patients and therapists work together to accomplish goals, ensuring the best possible outcome while building their strength and getting back to the routines of their daily lives. Patients who are discharged can continue their progress through outpatient therapy with the same therapy team they have come to know and trust.

Expansion of the Rehabilitation Therapy Center at Cedar Village will continue to enhance the comprehensive level of care available to our residents, as well as individuals of the community, who are undergoing inpatient and outpatient therapies. The therapy gym at Cedar Village is state of the art, and the therapists address each individual need of the patients they see, including speech, physical, and occupational therapies.

Patients and their therapists work together to ensure the best oucome possible for the goals they are striving to achieve. Patients who are discharged can continue their progress with the same therapy team they have come to know and trust as they build their strength and get back the routines of their daily lives.

The Cedar Village Rehab Department offers a comprehensive Driving Assessment Program which provides objective information about a person’s ability to drive safely.  Whether someone is recovering from an illness or injury, has completed rehabilitation, or is just concerned about their driving skills, the driving assessment program focuses on helping people determine if they can continue to, or resume driving safely and ways to that they might improve their ability to function behind the wheel.

The first part is an off-road thorough clinical assessment of vision, physical functioning and cognition as it relates to safe driving.  The second part is an in-car assessment which evaluates safety behind the wheel.    The assessment is conducted by a specially trained Cedar Village occupational therapist.  Referrals can be made by physicians, family members, or by the individual driver.  

We partner with a local driving school for the in-car assessment in a dually-equipped vehicle.

“I was thankful for the driving assessment team when I wasn’t sure if my parents should still be driving,” said a grateful daughter.

Our residents’ lives continue to be enriched at Cedar Village.  Popular classes include jewelry making, ceramics, and flower arranging.  They participate in the bell choir, music therapy sessions, and the Cedar Village Choir.

Recently, residents enjoyed arranging flowers together. First, the residents learned how to combine different categories of flowers together to make a beautiful bouquet. Next, they learned about how to cut the flowers before adding them to the vase. The flowers were placed in vases and then used to bring cheer to patients receiving health care.  The patients enjoyed the added color to their rooms and the fragrance that the bouquet provided.

Your donation will allow participants to continue making flower bouquets together.
