Helping older adults remain active + independent

As we age, the freedom to move around as we please becomes more and more important. When certain conditions that come with aging restrict that freedom, it can have a big effect on your physical and mental health.

People who seek geriatric rehabilitation care often share a common goal: to remain active and independent. We'll work with you and your care team to design a twofold geriatric rehabilitation plan that:

  • Strengthens mobility, balance and comfort
  • Minimizes the impact of musculoskeletal, neurologic and rheumatic conditions

Talk with your doctor about receiving geriatric rehabilitation care from the comfort of your own home.

It's only natural for bodies to change with age. Because of some of those changes — like a natural decrease in bone density and muscle atrophy — the body cannot withstand activities or injuries like before. That's why fractures and joint pain are much more common among older adults. 

Our specialists are here to support you with your evolving physical health needs. It's time to seek relief with our rehabilitation experts if you're living with a condition like the following: 

Lumbar degenerative disc disease
Peripheral neuropathy
Rheumatoid arthritis


We're always empowered by our patients' motivation to follow a rehabilitation plan at home or in their community. In turn, we empower them to live a more independent lifestyle. Each treatment plan will align with your personal rehabilitation goals and physical strength. We'll work with your primary care provider and other specialists to get the full picture of your health.

Home care

Sometimes, receiving 1-on-1 care from the comfort of your own home is just what the doctor ordered. We deliver the same quality of rehabilitation services you can receive in our offices straight to your doorstep with home care services like:
