Enter the therapy gym at Shuksan and you will immediately notice that we are different. Our in house, physical, occupational and speech therapists are encouraged to think outside the box while providing quality rehabilitation care. We take the time to get to know you as a unique individual and develop a personalized treatment approach.
In addition to traditional therapy techniques, we try to find ways to incorporate your personality and learning style. Along with using weights, you might find yourself throwing the ball for Prince our dog, picking flowers in the courtyard, or practicing your putting stroke.
We are not constrained by corporate guidelines dictating the time, type or amount of therapy you will be provided. We have the flexibility to support your recovery whether it is accompanying you to a doctor’s appointment, training family members to assist you into the car for outings, or conducting a home safety assessment.
At Shuksan our physical therapists focus on maximizing our residents function. Injury, illness, or surgery may require rehabilitation to improve your strength, balance, and coordination or adaptation to modify your environment. Physical Therapists work towards improving your safety and independence, keeping your goals paramount.
Our occupational therapists are here to support our residents in performing activities that will help them be successful at home. Whether it’s cooking, cleaning, dressing or performing self cares, our residents are guided toward maximum self sufficiency.
Our Speech Therapists focus on communication and swallowing impairments. Our Speech Therapists are equipped to design a program catered to meet your needs allowing the highest possible level of function.
Shuksan also has Respiratory Therapists as needed to help residents develop good breathing techniques to help you regain your independence but can also consult on what equipment will best help you with your goals.
