Rehabilitation Therapy

"Extraordinary Care — A Brighter Tomorrow"

Citizens Care & Rehabilitation Center partners with Adaptive Rehab Services, to manage all aspects of our therapy program; thus, maximizing our program's effectiveness and the benefits it provides our residents. They provide the highest compassionate care when our residents need it (including weekends) and provide the highest quality therapy services and programs individualized to meet the special needs of our residents.

Effective physical, occupational, and speech therapies are offered at Citizens Care & Rehabilitation Center, not only for our residents, but also for those folks who only need short-term care. These therapies certainly make a difference in a resident's quality of life. Our therapy services are designed to enhance the dignity and functional skills of each resident or non-resident, while meeting all Medicare guidelines. In addition, other skills are integrated into our therapy program, namely nursing, activities, and dietary.

Working in partnership with those who participate in our therapy program, we provide the highest quality, compassionately and professionally delivered rehabilitation program possible.
