Rehabilitation at The Living Center

Here at the Living Center, our rehabilitation team works with each resident to ensure they get the personalized attention they need to regain strength, maintain balance, communicate more easily, and achieve independence.

Our highly skilled staff provides physical, speech and language, and occupational therapy so members of our community can return to a more active life after experiencing a health event like an injury, stroke, or an on-going medical condition. Our singular focus is providing residents a path to recovery to allow them to complete tasks and live each day with as little assistance as possible.

The Living Center offers 116 private suites for short and long-term rehabilitation. Every suite has large windows with terrific views. Safety and function are at the heart of the design of our suites, which come with spacious wheelchair accessible bathrooms and non-slip tile in the showers. Comfort and convenience are also built into every Living Center suite, which come with cable television, free WiFi, a land line telephone, and individual climate controls for heating and air conditioning.

In addition to burgers, omelets, salads, and other meals, residents can also get snacks like Jell-O and cookies brought to their suites outside of regular dining hours. And our long-term care community also has a round-the-clock emergency call system, so help is available at a moment’s notice.

Beyond their front doors, each resident has a full schedule of activities awaiting, including painting, music therapy, and field trips.

The Living Center’s commitment to residents and the state-of-the-art care we provide has been recognized through the 2022 Pinnacle Customer Service Award which is given to providers who consistently achieve best-in-class care. It’s an award that’s based on the good things residents and their families say about their experience here.

Our dedicated therapists offer specialized care and are here to work hand-in-hand with your or your family member’s healthcare provider to help chart a path to recovery.

Occupational Therapy

We take a resident-focused approach on helping them get the care they need to be as independent as possible. Sometimes that requires re-learning how to do everyday tasks, and our dedicated staff is here to help them do that through occupational therapy that focuses on achieving maximum self-sufficiency.

We offer mobility training to help residents perform basic household tasks like cooking and getting dressed. Our occupational therapists also provide muscle strengthening and range of motion training, assistance with thought organization to help with planning activities, training on how to conserve your energy, and other specialized therapy.

Our occupational therapists also check to see if any modifications need to be made to the resident’s home to better allow them to be more self-reliant while going about their daily routine.

Physical Therapy

Our physical therapy services help members of the Living Center Community regain function and take back control of their lives following a surgery, joint replacement, injury, or the onset of long-term health conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, or COPD.

Sunny Vista’s board-certified physical therapists are focused on making each resident’s physical tasks less daunting by improving their movement, boosting their strength, and relieving their pain. That takes exercise and a supportive environment to keep each resident on the path to recovery.

Our physical therapists guide and coach residents through stretches, core exercises, lifting weights, and walks. Our physical therapists don’t just focus on helping residents recover from a fall. They also work to prevent future accidents through balance training, and each exercise program is tailored to a resident’s unique needs.

Speech and Language Therapy

If a resident has a problem speaking or swallowing, the underlying reason could be physical, emotional, or psychological. So, our speech and language therapists perform the assessments and tests needed to diagnose what’s happening and to see what needs to be done to help a resident communicate more easily with others.

Our speech therapists can help people resume their ability to speak or work with them to find alternate ways for them to communicate. They also help people facing the emotional difficulties that come with slurred speech following a stroke, so those residents are more confident while communicating with others.

The Living Center offers language ability and cognitive retraining, rehabilitation to help regain the ability to swallow, and Vital Stem Therapy for patients who have difficulty swallowing.
