We have onsite physical, occupational, and speech therapy services that can meet your needs and keep you close to home. Whether you live on our campus or are visiting our Red Oak Rehabilitation, our comprehensive therapy programs expand to anyone in the community.
The therapists at Christian Community Home have a combined experience of 57 years evaluating and treating older adults. They all work together as part of the interdisciplinary team with nursing, dietary, therapeutic recreation and social services to design therapy programs that facilitate independence for our community residents. They also work closely with the Red Oak Center to design exercise programs that maximize physical, mental, and social functioning.
