Short-Term Rehabilitation at The Cedars

The goal of The Cedars Rehabilitation Center is to help each patient attain their highest level of independence following a hospitalization. Under the direction of a physician, our Rehabilitation Team treats medically complex conditions and provides physical, occupational and speech therapy as needed, seven days per week. Each year The Rehabilitation Team safely transitions over 600 people back to their home. The Cedars has earned Five Stars for Quality Care from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS), the highest rating possible.


Great staff – particularly the Physical and Occupational Therapists. They are first class. They helped me reach the goals I needed to get home. The nurses are dedicated and friendly – and do a remarkable job.

Specialized Therapy for Seniors, Seven Days a Week

Our Physical Therapy Program is designed to help you become as independent as possible in your mobility and overall strength. The Physical Therapists emphasize balance, walking, getting in and out of bed, safety, coordination, posture, flexibility and strength. Our Physical Therapists all have advanced degrees, many are Geriatric Certified and some specialize in amputation therapy, manual manipulation techniques, neurological and musculoskeletal conditions.

Our Occupational Therapy Program focuses on improving independence in your activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, toileting, eating, and managing a home. Through therapeutic exercise, activities and the use of adaptive equipment, our Occupational Therapists focus on fine motor skills and reasoning abilities to help compensate for any functional changes. Many of our therapists have special training in Teepa Snow’s positive approaches to dementia care, lymphedema therapy, energy conservation and work simplification, and various neurological conditions.

Our Speech Therapy Program focuses on overcoming problems with speech, swallowing, hearing, comprehension, or expression. Speech Language Pathologists evaluate, plan and conduct treatment for speech deficits, voice problems, hearing and word pronunciation, all towards the goal of improving expression and communication. Speech therapists work closely with our dieticians to address and improve feeding and swallowing concerns.
