Helping you feel and function at your best

We are dedicated to improving, maintaining or restoring physical strength, cognition and mobility.

Peter Becker Community understands that just because aging is normal doesn’t mean one should endure pain and loss of function. The emphasis of our short-term rehabilitation program is to restore mobility and help regain the highest level of function and independence so our guests can return to their home as quickly as possible.

We provide the following services:

Physical Therapy

Occupational Therapy

Speech Therapy

Physical therapy addresses flexibility, strength, endurance, coordination and balance needed for activities as walking. This therapy involves exercise, pain management, education, ultrasound and balance strategies.

Occupational therapy is designed to help individuals achieve a level of independence in performing daily household and personal care tasks.  The therapist may recommend adaptive equipment to change the environment to fit the individual’s needs.

Speech therapy may be necessary when an individual’s swallowing or speech is affected. Our speech-language pathologist helps the person learn strategies for safe swallowing and effective communication.

Common conditions that may be alleviated with therapy are:
