About Orem Rehabilitation & Skilled Nursing

State-of-the-Art Care Services

For many seniors, special circumstances may call for specialized nursing care. That’s why we’re proud to offer quality nursing and rehabilitation programs, as well as our dedicated team of therapists and cutting-edge facilities and equipment to help promote the health and wellbeing of our patients.

Our compassionate and comfortable environment guarantees the best quality of life possible, along with providing expert medical support and management our patients can depend on.

In-House Therapy

Through our In-House Therapy Programs, we offer patients a full range of professional services for both short and long-term rehabilitation and nursing care.

Orem’s In-House Therapy Program

Our Vision, Your Success

Our therapy staff is the heart of Orem Rehabilitation & Skilled Nursing, and we take pride in the performance of both our therapy department and our entire care facility.

As a collaborative effort among team members, our staff will work with your physician to create a treatment plan that works for you. We understand every patient has unique needs that require special attention, and our In-House Therapy Program is custom designed to address them.

We provide a full-time in-house therapy team – no outside contractors or agencies—so our patients get to know their therapists, and vice-versa. We aim for just the right match between our patients and therapists for optimal results and comfort throughout all stages of recovery.

Our Holistic Approach

Our therapists receive education and training to other disciplines to ensure the continuity of care between therapy and nursing. At Orem Rehab, we work together with one goal in mind: to maximize your comfort and health.

A Passion for the Art of Caring

Full-Service Therapy

Our therapy team is passionate about bringing the latest techniques and programs to our patients.

Through continuing education, our physical and occupational therapists apply the latest research to improve balance and reduce fall risk. They also utilize therapeutic modalities combined with a full-service therapy program for strengthening, balance training, pain reduction, wound care, urinary incontinence, and increasing patients’ range of motion.

Our therapists are certified in specialty areas of practice, including:

  • Wound Care
  • Neurological Conditions
  • Electrical Stimulation for Swallowing Dysfunction
  • Lymphedema
  • Pulmonary Programs
  • Speech-Language Therapy
At the heart of our therapy programs is a deep appreciation for, and understanding of, the special needs of our more mature patients. This goes beyond the science and research in order to tap into the art of caring for these unique needs.

Integrated Cognitive Program

Therapy Tailored for Each Patient

Orem Rehabilitation & Skilled Nursing’s cognitive program combines a standardized cognitive assessment with our patients’ “life footprint” to help us develop a comprehensive understanding of each individual under our care.

After assessing a patient’s functional cognitive level, we overlay this assessment with a complete background inventory including relevant details of their daily life.

By combining these two data sets in a meaningful way, our therapists can better tailor individualized therapy programs to address the patient’s needs.

Our professionals can also reduce the stress and anxiety of being in a new environment for either a short-term rehabilitation or a permanent residence. Our advanced Integrated Cognitive Program is also instrumental in setting up the best care for patients living with Alzheimer’s Disease.

Our Services

Programs Designed to Fit Your Needs

Our therapists and nurses work together as a team, and due to the continuity of their care, a strong trust is built with our residents. There is comfort in knowing that the same smiling face will be there to help them through their rehabilitation each day.

No matter your health needs, our rehabilitation team is ready to help you make a successful recovery.

  • Physical Therapists (PT) & Physical Therapy Assistants (PTA)
  • Occupational Therapists (OT) & Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants (COTA)
  • Speech and Language Pathologists
  • Rehab Aide/Technicians

Our therapists work together along with nursing, social services, activities, the business office, families, caregivers, and local communities to assess functional potential, and collaborate on the unique goals for every patient.

Physical Therapists

Our team of professional Physical Therapists will assess and treat impairments in strength and function that occur as a result of injury, disease, age-related degeneration, or environmental factors. Physical therapy treatments are performed by our in-house physical therapist or physical therapy assistant.

Occupational Therapists

Orem Rehab’s Occupational Therapists will assess the impact that a decline in function has in the patient’s ability to participate in their life by performing everyday tasks such as dressing and bathing, or being able to return to work or engage in previous hobbies.

Speech Therapists and/or Language Pathologists

Our team will assess the language, cognition, and swallowing dysfunctions of our patients. A Speech Therapist’s main goal is helping residents with swallowing difficulties, such as working with patients with modified diets to help them get back to eating the types of foods they love.

Family members are essential contributors to this interdisciplinary rehab team, as they provide the background and detail of their loved one’s life to incorporate into our plan of care.

While in our care, please know that your loved one will be well taken care of. Because all of our rehab therapists are in-house (rather than outside contractors), our relationships with our residents are superior.

Rehab to Return Home

Anticipating Your Every Need

At Orem Rehabilitation & Skilled Nursing, we work with each patient, their family, and their healthcare providers to determine the care and treatment plan of action. When the ultimate goal is to return home, our therapists explore every detail of each patient’s living arrangements.

We encourage family members to actively participate in the care so that they can help their loved one prepare for discharge. We frequently perform a Home Assessment; a tool we can use to develop a custom rehabilitation program that prepares our patients for any particular challenges they might experience once they’re home.

Our Commitment to Caregiving

When the plan is to stay in our care facility once the therapy program is complete, we make sure to work side-by-side with our nursing staff so that our patients can continue to function at their highest level to preserve their independence and participation. We even provide screenings after completion of each program so that our patients are maintaining their abilities at the best possible level.

Expert Staff

A Staff That Excels And Exceeds

Visit Orem Rehabilitation & Skilled Nursing, and you’ll notice a definite difference: our caregivers are the best.

You’ll meet a team of five-star innovators—our nurses, therapists and other clinicians are professionals at the top of their games, who are truly committed, caring, and wholeheartedly passionate.

As leaders on the front lines of daily care, our caregivers have a true voice in the operations of their departments and Orem’s facility, especially in the way they provide care to each and every patient.

Our leadership team treats our caregivers the same way we want them to treat our residents: with utmost care, respect, and admiration for the wonderful people they are.

This sense of family and caring permeates everything we do at Orem Rehab, and allows us to attract the most outstanding caregivers our community has to offer.

On-Site Decision Makers

We Don’t Wait to Make Important Decisions

In order to provide the best care possible, our caregivers must be empowered to make decisions, because in many cases, every second counts.

So rather than waiting for a decision from higher-ups who might not understand the crucial details of any given situation, we leave the decisions to those who are closest and know best: the caregivers, doctors, and nurses who work with our patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

It’s important to us that our patients, as well as their family members, feel loved, informed and comfortable during their stay at our facility. Quality of life is just as important as quality of care in a skilled nursing facility – and we work hard to make sure that every patient is as happy and comfortable as possible.

Every staff member on the floor and in the office knows each patient by name. They make eye contact as they greet them, and once a request is met, they ask if there is anything else they may need. If there is a request, the team member is then empowered to carry it through.

We’ve found that with this kind of team member empowerment, patients have consistently shown greater motivation to reach their goals.
