Rehabilitation at Birmingham Green

Birmingham Green offers Speech, Occupational, and Physical Rehabilitation for all residents in our community.

Rehabilitation Offerings

Birmingham Green offers rehabilitative therapies through a contracted service, Select Rehab. This department designs each resident’s rehabilitative program to conform to the needs of the resident and the orders of their personal physician, whether at our Assisted Living facilities, Willow Oaks or District Home, or our Health Care Center

Occupational, Speech, and Physical Therapy are offered to each Birmingham Green resident as needed. The goal of rehabilitative therapy is to assist our residents in reaching and maintaining the highest level of independence possible. Our team consists of talented therapists who have a strong reputation for clinical quality, effective outcomes, and positive customer service.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is a branch of health care that helps people of all ages who have physical, sensory, or cognitive problems. Occupational therapy can help individuals regain independence in all areas of their lives.

Speech Therapy

Speech therapy exercises for adults can help with speech, language, and cognitive communication. Therapy may also include retraining of swallowing function if an injury or medical condition, such as Parkinson’s disease or oral cancer has caused swallowing difficulties.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy addresses the illnesses or injuries that limit a person's abilities to move and perform functional activities in their daily lives. PTs use an individual's history and physical examination to arrive at a diagnosis and establish a management plan.

Speech Therapy at Birmingham Green

Speech Therapy treatment at Birmingham Green will target impairments affecting voice, fluency, cognition, aphasia, and swallowing.

Our Speech-Language Pathologists (SLP) strive to implement programs that will increase verbal expression, auditory comprehension, and problem-solving. This allows for an increased ability to communicate basic physical needs and emotional status, personal self-care needs, engage in social-communicative interaction with immediate family and friends, plan for future events, and reminisce about the past.
