Home Management Training

The therapy professionals teach patient strategies to manage daily activities at home, while reducing the risk of injury or further decline. Because our facility includes a full kitchen, laundry, and bathroom with tub and shower, this part of the treatment process can be initiated quickly and progressed incrementally.

Home Assessments

Prior to discharge, our therapists can evaluate the patient’s function in their own home with family members present. The therapist will make recommendations that allow for a balance between the patient’s abilities, needed and desired activities, and the home environment so they can manage safely and productively at home

Multi Disciplinary Team Approach

Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Speech Therapy collaborate with one another and our medical staff to develop and implement a plan of care that helps each resident most efficiently achieve their specific goals. Multiple medical professionals work together to facilitate a positive healing and recovery process.


Individual treatment plans are outlined with goal setting and residents get to enjoy the benefit of working one-on-one with the professional therapy staff.

Caregiver Training

The therapy team educates family members and other caregivers on each resident’s individual function and needs. This facilitates an easier recovery process and safer, smoother transition to home.

Our Shared Success

To the staff of The Caring Place:

I’m sitting here this afternoon before discharge anxiously waiting for the day to pass. I’m looking forward to home while looking around the place I’ve called home since around Christmas. I’ve been treated by people with a variety of titles and jobs and despite their roles they all treated me with the best they had to offer. There was always the kindest helping hand and the friendliest smile.

Most activities were treated with pleasant attitudes and attempts to be fun. This place truly felt like my home. The kitchen put up with my special requests and the nurses and nursing assistants gave the utmost in understanding of my fears and anxieties and enabled me to make a rapid recovery.

The staff of Physical and Occupational therapy worked me the way needed and expertly led me along the right path. I’m truly grateful for everyone’s assistance and I’m sure you guys were able to shorten my stay. I look forward to healing at home but will be forever grateful for the staff of The Caring Place.

May God Bless each of you as he has blessed me.
Love to you all,
Dave Redding
