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.
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.
A Passion for the Art of Caring
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.
Integrated Cognitive Program
Therapy Tailored for Each Patient
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.
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.
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.
