Helping seniors maintain their independence with specialized short-term and long-term rehabilitation.
At the Eastmont Rehabilitation Center, we specialize in patients 65 and up and serve a wide range of needs including orthopedic and cardiac rehabilitation; weakness, balance and mobility issues; support for prosthetic/amputees; post-pneumonia or post-COVID recovery; and after any hospitalization or injury. As a Board Certified Geriatric Clinical Specialist, Eastmont’s Director of Rehabilitation, Mark Sunderman, PT, has advanced clinical knowledge and skills in the area of geriatrics. Mark and his team of licensed physical and occupational therapists guide and direct your journey from admission to discharge, providing an interdisciplinary, holistic approach to personalized rehabilitation.
We welcome the opportunity to help you achieve the most successful outcome and remain independent with our short- and long-term rehabilitation services that include:
Physical Therapy: Our Physical Therapy services rebuild strength, mobility and ambulation. Our staff strives to make each personalized session enjoyable and productive.
Occupational Therapy: Our Occupational Therapy services assist individuals as they rebuild the skills necessary for performing activities of daily living, like dressing and cooking. Our occupational therapists will work with your family to make sure your destination following rehabilitation is safe. Our team accomplishes this by employing creative adaptations and supportive equipment.
