Ridge Crest provides short- and long-term rehab through physical, speech and occupational therapies. Resident and nonresident seniors can receive expert care from our skilled therapists and speech pathologists using the most advanced treatments and technologies.

Occupational therapy is similar to physical therapy in that it helps to restore strength and mobility. Occupational therapy also helps people adapt to their social and physical environments through education in activities such as dressing, memory training and coordination exercises.

Our skilled speech and language pathologists address communication issues and swallowing dysfunction. They’ll design treatment plans to help with language ability, provide alternate communication strategies and give appropriate diet recommendations.

Ridge Crest provides short-term rehabilitation on a Medicare and private-pay basis.
