Rehabilitation Services

If you have an injury or condition that requires rehabilitation, CenterLight Health System is here to help. When it comes to meeting your rehabilitative needs, we offer a variety of options in our nursing homes or in your own home, including physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, music therapy and virtual rehabilitation.

 

Rehabilitation in the Nursing Home/Sub-acute Rehabilitation Facility

CenterLight Health System has state-of-the-art rehabilitation centers that use a team approach to enable individuals to regain their ability to function independently and perform tasks, such as walking, reaching and keeping their balance. Our goal is to return individuals to their home and community in the shortest time possible.

Rehabilitation in the Home

For individuals living at home, CenterLight Health System offers three community programs that provide high quality rehabilitation services:

CenterLight Health System's CenterLight Healthcare offers individuals rehabilitation in their home or in our day health centers, as part of a coordinated plan of care.

Our Long Term Home Health Care Program, also known as the Lombardi Program or the Nursing Home Without Walls, has a skilled team of rehabilitation therapists that collaborate with nurses, social workers and nutritionists, as well as with an individual’s primary care physician, to develop a personalized plan of care.

CenterLight Health System’s medical model Adult Day Health Care programs offer adults who are chronically ill or in need of health monitoring, access to rehabilitation therapy as well as nursing care, social work services, therapeutic recreation and assistance with personal care in day health centers.

 

Types of Rehabilitation

See the section below for Where We Offer Rehabilitation services.

Physical Therapy

CenterLight Health System’s licensed physical therapists use exercises and physical activities to help individuals recover their ability to move in their environment. Techniques vary depending on condition, but are usually focused on tasks such as walking, reaching, bending and negotiating stairs.

Occupational Therapy

CenterLight Health System’s licensed occupational therapists use exercises and physical activities to help individuals restore their ability to perform activities of daily living such as eating, drinking, dressing and bathing.

Speech Therapy

CenterLight Health System’s licensed speech-language pathologists use specialized techniques to help patients improve their speech, language and listening skills, as well as their ability to swallow. They also help individuals improve cognitive aspects of communication such as attention, memory and problem solving.

Music Therapy

CenterLight Health System’s licensed music therapists work in conjunction with our physical, occupational and speech therapists to help rehabilitate individuals with physical and neurological trauma resulting from stroke, Parkinson’s Disease and other diseases and conditions. Our music therapy program has transformed CenterLight Health System’s rehabilitation centers into lively environments where patients are more engaged in their treatment and find their physical and occupational therapy sessions enjoyable. Patients work one-on-one or in small groups with our music therapists, using clinical music therapy techniques to meet their rehabilitation goals. For example, a patient can use a rhythmic beat to help synchronize their movements, resulting in an improved ability to walk.

Virtual Rehabilitation

CenterLight Health System was the first healthcare organization in New York City to offer virtual rehabilitation. Our licensed physical and occupational therapists use exercises in a computerized virtual setting to help individuals improve their coordination, balance and increase their range of motion. The individual sees themselves on large plasma monitors, while a camera tracks their movements in real time. Data is recorded throughout the session for review with the individuals. Virtual rehabilitation is a complement to traditional physical and/or occupational therapy. Our patients report that they enjoy virtual rehabilitation so much that they often don’t realize that they are getting therapy.

Please call us at 718-636-1000 for more information to determine which rehabilitation program is right for you.
