Our reputation is why people travel many miles to Astoria for rehabilitation services. Highly skilled therapists combine the use of specialized equipment with the latest technology to provide the best outcome in the quickest time.
Our therapists are extremely dedicated to improving every aspect of each resident’s health, recovery, productive and active lifestyle. Residents with specialized needs or medical complications will benefit from our rehabilitative expertise and superior resident care. Our innovative programs emphasize a comprehensive approach, professional care, and optimal recovery.
On an inpatient or outpatient basis, we offer Physical, Occupational, Speech and Restorative therapies designed to meet a wide variety of needs including:
- Orthopedic rehab for fractures or joint replacement
- Stroke rehab
- Neurological rehab for progressive conditions
- Cardiopulmonary rehab
- Wound care
Our Physical Therapists focus on our residents regaining strength and balance, achieving optimal mobility skills, improving range of motion, relieving pain and promoting wound care management. They instruct residents in techniques to improve their ability to walk, climb stairs, and increase physical stamina. Professionals assess the need for equipment, such as specialized braces or mobility devices that may be required to improve self-reliance and safety, and assist with ambulation, prevention, and contractures.
Our Occupational Therapists maximize our residents’ independence in performing activities of daily living and self-care skills such as feeding, dressing, bathing, and grooming. They help restore prior abilities lost through illness or injury such as brain, spinal cord, post fractures, and other problems. In addition, our occupational therapists focus on improving hand and arm function as well as upper body strength using various levels of activity. They also emphasize safety training as well as other compensatory techniques to help restore the whole person. They are specialists not only in recommending adaptive equipment but also in making recommendations to help our residents readjust safely to their own environment. This enables our residents to complete their ADLs at their highest functioning level.

Our Speech Pathologists evaluate and assist residents who have communication problems due to a stroke, neurological disorders, head injury, surgery, or voice disorder. Treatment can improve a resident’s ability to express words and thoughts, understand and follow directions, read, write and gesture. Our speech pathologists also treat residents with swallowing disorders. Residents with a tracheostomy or other respiratory disorders may also benefit from treatment. Cognitive and linguistic skills are provided for residents with reduced memory, lack of concentration, problem-solving difficulties or safety skills due to brain injury or dementia.
