Our Specially Trained Staff
Whether you’re recovering from illness, injury or surgery, our staff of specially trained professionals will see to your every health care need. We will also offer in the “Home N Sight” environment occupational, physical and speech therapy services by licensed therapists. Physical therapy reduces pain and increases strength. The goal of occupation therapy is to increase independence in activities of daily life such as bathing, dressing, meal preparation, a favorite hobby or working at a job. Speech therapy not only addresses communication, but also swallowing and cognitive abilities. Therapists work together as a team, and many rehabilitation services overlap.
The “Home N Sight” therapy department features a fully-equipped kitchen and bathroom where patients can practice and regain their daily living skills before returning to their own homes. This also helps therapists identify what assistive devices might be necessary to ensure the safety of the patient at home.
What Exactly Does “Short-term Stay” Mean For You?
A short-term stay at Windsor Place is by no means the end of the road. In fact, it’s a good way to get started on the road to recovery. A short-term stay at Windsor Place is typically 14 to 100 days, depending on individual circumstances. Some people recover quickly, others require more time to recuperate. Be assured that we’ll never send you home before you and your family are absolutely ready, nor keep you a day longer than needed. Therapy services may continue following a short-term stay on an out-patient basis.
