Rehabilitation services are effective
At Millcreek Manor our comprehensive rehabilitation programs offer our residents the
opportunity to achieve their goals. For many residents, rehabilitation provides them with the
opportunity to resume their former lifestyles. Other residents discover that our programs
encourage optimal independence, high self-esteem, and motivation. Each resident lives as
independently as possible within the facility.
Our rehabilitation programs have
proven to be beneficial to residents presenting with a wide variety of conditions: strokes,
orthopedic procedures, amputations, and other clinically complex situations. Our physical,
occupational, and speech therapy services are provided by our team of licensed or certified
therapists who are committed to enhancing the quality of life for our residents.
rehabilitation team works with the entire Millcreek Manor staff to ensure that each resident has
the opportunity to reach their highest level of independence. Residents who are able to return home
are provided with home evaluations to assure that any adaptations or accommodations are made to
make the return home successful.
Our Rehabilitation Department provides:
- Physical Therapy – Our physical therapists work with residents to restore their
highest level of functioning, improve their mobility, and to relieve their pain. The physical
therapists’ goal is to restore, maintain and promote each resident’s overall health and
- Occupational Therapy – Our occupational therapists
work with residents to improve their ability to perform tasks of daily living. The occupational
therapists work with residents who have physical conditions that are challenging physically,
mentally, and emotionally. The primary goal of our occupational therapists is to assist residents
with developing, recovering, or maintaining skills for daily living.
- Speech Therapy – Our speech therapists help residents who have deficits with
speech and voice, language and communication, swallowing disorders, and cognitive functioning
- Restorative Nursing – At Millcreek Manor, our
Restorative Nursing program is guided under the direction of a registered nurse for those residents
who do not require formal physical or occupational therapy services. Individualized restorative
activities help our residents improve or maintain their independence as long as possible. Our goal
is to aid residents in achieving optimal physical, psychological, emotional and social potential in
order to maintain dignity and self-respect. The restorative program is nursing staff working
closely with physicians and therapists to develop the best plan for residents with activities
including ambulation exercises, dining skills, range of motion exercises, etc.
