In October 2017, Plymouth Harbor began working with RehabCare, a local contract rehabilitation and therapy management service. RehabCare provides us with the staffing needed in our Therapy Department to offer superior inpatient and outpatient therapy services to not only residents of the Smith Care Center, but to all residents of Plymouth Harbor. RehabCare offers patient-specific programs in Physical Therapy (PT), Occupational Therapy (OT), and Speech-Language Pathology.
Working with a rehab partner to provide these services offers Plymouth Harbor several benefits, including a dedicated seven-days-per-week therapy team that is trained in specialty clinical programs that are designed to facilitate optimal outcomes. RehabCare has similar partnerships with Sarasota Bay Club and Aviva Senior Life, which means that we have the ability to share staff to help accommodate resident needs. That said, on a day-to-day basis, SCC’s Therapy Department is comprised of close to seven therapists, including the presence of a Speech Language Pathologist and both PT and OT on weekends.
RehabCare is ready and willing to assist all residents of Plymouth Harbor. If you wish to set up a comprehensive evaluation for balance, fall prevention/risk, or more, they are more than happy to work with you. In addition to outpatient services in SCC, the therapy team is also able to work with residents in the Plymouth Harbor Wellness Center. If you have questions or would like more information, please contact Director of Rehabilitation Services, April Kennedy, at Ext. 166.
