Our Care. Your Options.

Maximize your mobility. Fast-track your function. Achieve a better quality of life. Our highly trained and experienced CarDon physical therapy staff are known for their compassion, enthusiasm, personal care, and commitment. They want to get to know every patient to carefully assess their physical issues and create a plan completely tailored to you. Your body will get stronger every day. Remember, every journey begins with a single step.

The main goal of our occupational therapists is to get you back to your highest level of functioning. Without strain or discomfort. The occupational therapists at each of our CarDon communities will zero-in on a treatment plan for you and ONLY you. Activities include strength and dexterity, coordination, dressing, cooking, eating, memory improvement, cognitive behavioral therapy, and problem solving.

We’ll help you get there. Achieve the greatest functional outcome and minimize injury or disability. Because  even the smallest victories can be the most rewarding.

At CarDon communities, we specialize in speech therapy. We help and guide residents who have conditions that could impact the ability to swallow or communicate. Our caring and skilled speech therapists manage in-depth evaluations. They get to the source of the problem. From there, an action plan is laid out to suit each person’s unique needs.

Swallowing Disorders (Dysphagia) The goal of dysphagia therapy is to help the individual learn to swallow more safely and effectively. The therapy often involves learning exercises, new positions, and strategies to improve specific swallowing functions.

Speech/Language Impairments Therapies for individuals whose language abilities are impaired range from auditory cues, organizing, or recalling information. We’ll help develop strategies to record information to aid memory, and/or address underlying physical or mental concerns to improve speech and communications.

When you’re ready to head back home.

It’s time to go back home, and our team of skilled therapists make sure every single detail is in order for a safe transition. While residents are still in our care, we provide a “home safe visit” checking for safety and any adjustments needed. We’ll be there for you every step of the way.
