Outpatient Therapy

Reach New Heights in Your Recovery

Our facility offers so much more than a traditional nursing home can provide! With our own in-house rehabilitation gym and licensed therapy team, members of the local community, as well as current Laurel guests discharging for home, can benefit from our outpatient programs.

Outpatient therapy at The Laurels can help all age groups reach new heights in their recovery, improve function, and gain confidence, all while maintaining a normal routine at home. 

What is Outpatient Therapy and How Can it Help in the Recovery Process?

What We Offer:
  • An in-house, licensed therapy team

Unlike many nursing facilities, we employ our own team of skilled therapists and rehab technicians. We attract, train, and retain knowledgeable, caring, and compassionate individuals who are dedicated to aiding you or your loved one on the road to recovery.

  • The best in physical, occupational, and speech therapy

Our talented physical therapists focus on improving an individual's ability to move their body, while our occupational therapists strive to assist an individual with performing activities of daily living. The goal of our speech therapists, especially with our largely senior population, is to increase functional communication and cognitive skills, as well as teach safe swallowing by introducing diet modifications and special feeding techniques.

  • PREhab therapy 

Do you or a loved one have a surgery scheduled? PREhab is designed to improve recovery time following surgery and increase functional capacity by ramping up physical activity prior to procedure.

  • State-of-the-art equipment

Our rehab gym is stocked with appropriate equipment to help build both physical and cognitive strength and expedite the recovery process.
