We’re proud to offer many different types of rehabilitation services at Shaker Place to ensure our residents, whether short-term or long-term, are on a journey to recovery and wellness.


Physical Therapy (PT)

Physical therapy forms the cornerstone of our rehabilitation programs, focusing on restoring mobility, strength, and functionality. Through a blend of exercises, functional skill training, and innovative techniques, our experienced therapists help residents overcome physical challenges and regain independence. With access to state-of-the-art equipment such as KORE balance machines, NuStep cross-training machines, power parallel bars, and more, residents receive personalized care to address their specific needs. From traditional exercises to advanced modalities like electrical stimulation and ultrasound therapy, our physical therapy services are designed to promote recovery and improve overall well-being.


Occupational Therapy (OT)

Occupational therapy at Shaker Place is dedicated to enhancing residents’ ability to perform daily activities and achieve greater independence. Our holistic approach encompasses a wide range of interventions, including ADL training, homemaking skills development, and adaptive equipment assessment. Our newly renovated occupational therapy room caters to a diverse range of injuries for both short-term rehab and long-term care residents. Within our state-of-the-art ADL suite, residents engage in simulated environments addressing the four basic needs of Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). From our OT kitchen for food preparation to the laundry room for clothing care and the bathroom for personal hygiene, residents develop their essential life skills. We also employ the use of our unique therapy car to help residents to practice vehicle transfers, preparing them for a safe journey to and from our facility. Whether it’s mastering dressing techniques, improving meal preparation skills, or learning strategies for independent living, our occupational therapists provide personalized support to help residents reach their goals. Through hands-on therapy and practical guidance, we empower individuals to live life to the fullest. 


Speech Therapy

Speech therapy at Shaker Place addresses a range of communication, cognitive, and swallowing disorders. Our in-house speech therapists are dedicated to helping residents improve their communication skills and overcome challenges related to neurological incidents, trauma, or cognitive impairments. From language development to swallowing rehabilitation, our therapists employ muscle retraining techniques to strengthen voice and swallowing muscles, along with teaching compensatory strategies for overcoming communication challenges. Additionally, we also provide training and support in using communication devices, ranging from simple aids to electronic devices, in order to enhance verbal speech. By working collaboratively with other care providers, we ensure that each resident receives comprehensive and integrated care tailored to their specific needs.


Respiratory Therapy

Residents with acute or chronic respiratory problems or lung disease benefit significantly from our respiratory therapy program. Our respiratory therapists develop individualized treatment plans to help residents better manage their conditions and improve their quality of life. From breathing techniques and energy conservation to oxygen therapy and medication management, our comprehensive approach addresses the unique needs of each resident. Through education, counseling, and support, residents gain the skills and confidence to better their respiratory health and well-being.
