About Rosewood’s Rehabilitation Services

It can be a long road back when recoveringOT Patient from a disabling injury or illness. But when people realize the potential of tomorrow, they are motivated to work harder towards their goals, whether they are to return to work, a favorite activity, or just their daily routine. With skilled and experienced clinicians, including physical, occupational, and speech therapists, we strive to improve people’s ability to function and care for themselves again.

Therapy services are offered to residents who are long-term skilled nursing candidates, short-stay candidates, as well as outpatients. Our services are covered under Medicare, Medicaid, Workers Compensation, and most private insurance companies.

Following an evaluation of a patient’s functional abilities, an individualized rehabilitation treatment program is developed, as prescribed by the attending physician.
