Day Therapy Program is an intensive outpatient therapy program for patients who live at home and no longer require 24 hours nursing or inpatient therapy. Our program helps build physical strength and functional skills so individuals can manage activities of daily living as independently as possible. Together, we develop a treatment plan so individuals can enjoy their favorite activities, participate in family or social get-togethers and return to work.

What to Expect

Our therapists work with you and your referring physician to personalize your treatment plan based on your unique situation and goals.
