Senior Rehabilitation in Lakeland, Florida
Get Back to Living
Our Porter-McGrath Health Center is home to on-site rehabilitation services for our residents. These include physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech language pathology. Outpatient services are also available for assisted living and independent residents.
Physical therapists (PTs) help patients reduce pain and improve or restore mobility. They can teach patients how to prevent or manage their condition so they can achieve long-term health benefits. Patients are examined individually and PTs work in tandem to help develop a custom plan for promoting the ability to move, reduce pain and restore function. PTs work with individuals to prevent the loss of mobility before it occurs by developing fitness- and wellness-oriented programs for healthier and more active lifestyles.
Occupational therapists help people across their lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). Occupational therapy services typically include an individualized evaluation and customized intervention to improve the person’s ability to perform daily activities and reach goals.
Speech-language pathologists assess, diagnose, treat, and help to prevent communication and swallowing disorders in patients. Speech, language, and swallowing disorders result from a variety of causes, such as stroke, brain injury, hearing loss and dementia. Other aspects treated by speech therapists are cognitive linguistic impairments such as memory, problem-solving, safety awareness, and other impairments that are affecting activities of daily living such as difficulty articulating words or using expressive language.
