Therapy

 

Village Health Care, in partnership with Infinity Rehab, provides a complete spectrum of rehabilitation services on-site in our therapy gym. Our physical, occupational, and speech therapists, along with restorative nursing aids, provide rehab assistance seven days a week.

Our unique therapy program is tailored to the needs of each individual patient and their specific needs and goals of care. Therapists work close with our interdisciplinary team to ensure that we see the big picture and the tiny details that can accelerate the recovery process.

Teamwork between the patient and therapists enhances the rehabilitation process and provides for successful outcomes.
