Our Therapy Center
Come join our family! Brooksville Healthcare Center center is a not-for-profit skilled nursing and rehabilitation facility nestled in a serene oak-shaded country setting. We offer several outside areas for our residents including outdoor courtyards and a nature trail.
We offer physical, occupational and speech therapy to promote independence and improve the quality of life for our residents. Therapy can be provided on an inpatient or outpatient basis.
Our physical therapy programs are designed to help patients regain their strength, improve mobility, manage pain, or adapt to a disability. Brooksville Healthcare Center offers unique and exciting programs such as Cardiac Functional Conditioning, Orthopaedic Therapy, Neurological Therapy, Outdoor Fitness Stations, and therapy utilizing the Wii Fit. The goal of the Rehabilitation Department is to achieve the highest level of independence through intensive rehabilitation and therapies.
Occupational therapy assists patients in performing activities of all types, ranging from caring for daily needs such as dressing, cooking, and eating. Services typically include: customized treatment programs to improve one's ability to perform daily activities; adaptive equipment recommendations and usage training; and guidance to family members and caregivers. Occupational therapy helps patient of all ages regain, develop, or master everyday skills in order to live independent, productive, and satisfying lives. Occupational therapists assess patients with physical and mental challenges in order to develop activities of daily living (ADL) that work best for those patients. For a patient with a physical disability, the first focus is on performing critical daily routines, such as dressing, grooming, bathing, and eating. Once these skills are mastered, a program is then built around the skills needed to perform more advanced tasks.
Speech Therapy Similar to the other therapies, speech therapy focuses on restoring an individual to a prior/highest level of function. Difficulties that may arise from a stroke, head injury or debilitating illness can be relearned or compensated for through the teaching of a speech language pathologist. Areas of rehabilitation include: communication, cognition, voice, stuttering and swallowing. Our speech/language programs include Vital Stim, a specialized concept in treating swallowing difficulties.
