At the Hillandale Family of Communities, we believe in doing everything we can to help our members maintain and build their function and independence. Whether you need to keep the progress you've made in therapy or you're looking to build your body through  personal training and group fitness, we want to help you succeed!


Hillandale Wellness Overview

Physical Therapy
   Physical therapy presents many challenges. This is why we continually assess and modify your treatment as you develop, maintain and restore maximum mobility and independence.
   We'll help you overcome the issues that accompany suregery, illness, infury, aging, and more. Our physical therapists use your medical history and physical examination information to diagnose and establish a personalized treatment plan.
   Your physical, psychological, emotional, and social well-being are central to the success of this process. Your quality of life will improve along with your mobility as we employ promotion, prevention, treatment/intervention, habilitation and rehabilitiation.
   The process of assessing progress and setting improvement goals includes your doctor, your therapist, you, and your family. Certified physical therapists (PTs) or physical therapist assistants (PTAs) under the direction of a PT will guide and educate you and your family through each stage of your recovery.
   Our innovative, state-of-the-art therapy department features brands such as Biodex, Keiser, and HUR (with Smart Card technology). We use safe pneumatic machines to reduce stress on adult and geriatric joints throughout the rehabilitation process. Regardless of your physical therapy needs, we'll work to get you back on your feet swiftly and safely.

Occupational Therapy
   The primary objective of occupational therapy is to assess your physical needs, analyze your areas of limitation, and design a customized treatment plan to promote independence at home and at work with improved mobility, safety, strength, and endurance.
   Our expert occupational therapists (OTs) work with a variety of people just like you to overcome mental, developmental, and physical disabilities every day.
   Using careful analysis of all factors, we identify your potential occupational barriers. Then we help you complete all types of activities, from using a computer to caring for your daily needs such as dressing, cooking, laundry, and eating.
   Cottagewood One, our fully functional therapy apartment, displays our revolutionary approach to accomplishing your therapy goals. Featuring kitchen, living room, bedroom, bathroom, and laundry environments complete with working applicances, this amazing facility allows you to master all the necessary skills you'll need to successfully return home.
   Cottagewood One is also completely equipped with grab bars, safety rails, and other home accessibility devices. We'll show you how to use these helpful tools to simplify your life. As you try them out, you'll learn safe ways to reach for the things you need, do your laundry, transfer yourself in and out of the bathtub or bed, and much more.
Successful occupational therapy makes going home that much sweeter.

Speech Therapy
   A wide variety of language, speech, voice, cognition, and swallowing disorders can be treated successfully through speech therapy. We emphasize a personalized approach as we establish a comprehensive program of exercises to address all your areas of disability.
   Because speech disorders are so often related to other neurological, psychological, and physical conditions, our skilled speech therapists know the importance of a team approach that includes health care specialists like your doctor, nurses, and other care providers. We'll counsel you and your family with patience and compassion through the tough issues of recovery.
Careful diagnosis, comprehensive evaluation, and an empathetic attitude are essential to understanding your speech therapy needs. When you are unable to speak or swallow effectively, even simple tasks can become challenging. However, the results of a well-crafted speech therapy program can be incredibly rewarding and we look forward to sharing in the joy of your successful rehabilitation.
   Our staff is with you every step of the way from your initial screening to assessment, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up. With years of hospital therapy experience, we are equipped to guide you all the way to recovery. Our skilled professionals have helped many individuals with swallowing, speech, and cognitive problems return to normal living following their surgery, accident, or illness.

   Our "Therapy at the Speed of Love" treatment plans, and our Cottagewood One fully functional therapy apartment are worth looking into. Call today for a tour of our therapy departements, at (513) 777-1400. Also visit our website at www.hillandale.com
