Why RehabCare?

Residents see many benefits to starting a RehabCare program.  Here are seven amazing ways residents can see improvement through these programs.

  1. Being physically active can add almost four quality years to your life!
  2. Maintaining a physically active lifestyle helps prevent dozens of diseases, including heart disease, diabetes and certain types of cancer.
  3. By performing gait and balance activities, falls can reduce by 40%.
  4. Weight-bearing and resistance activities can help prevent osteoporosis.
  5. Strength training doesn’t just improve your muscles; it can also improve sleep quality, depression and overall quality of life.
  6. Regular brain stimulating activities are also available which can improve memory ability.
  7. Regular physical activity helps you sustain your ability to live independently.

Along with seeing an overall better lifestyle, most insurances pay for therapy. Wellness Programs are also available for free or for a dollar a minute!
