Personalized “Back on Track” Rehab to Home Program
Farmington Country Manor will allow you to feel refreshed, energized and ready to start a new day of working toward your rehabilitation goals.
Here is a typical day within our rehab program:
Each morning you’ll awaken to the smell of fresh coffee and breakfast in your room or in the main dining room. You can relax and read the newspaper, use your laptop, watch TV or chat with others. After breakfast, you’ll meet with the therapy team to work on your customized rehabilitation plan and therapy goals for the day.
After morning therapy, a delectable lunch of your choice will be served. An afternoon rehabilitation session will come next, if ordered by your physician, and then you’ll have free time to relax or catch up with friends and family. Later, you can watch a movie, have visitors join you for dinner, take a relaxing shower, or play a friendly competitive game of Wii. We also give you the flexibility to arrange outings when approved by your physician.
In addition, you’ll learn from our medical professionals about your condition and treatment so that along with your therapy team, you’ll know how best to help your body recuperate and return to an active lifestyle.

We use the latest technology and innovative rehabilitation techniques to provide you with the following:
Physical therapy not only specializes in the treatment of our patient’s bones and joints, but it also evaluates the nerves and muscles that move the bones. Physical therapists perform in depth evaluations, which provide information about joint motion, flexibility, strength and the endurance of the patient. E-stimulation is also provided for improving strength and movement. Ultrasound and Electromagnetic Energy is used for decreasing pain and joint stiffness.
Areas of treatment focus may include:
- Increase strength and mobility in the body and lower extremities
- Increase motor control for a resident who has suffered a stroke
- Improve coordination, balance and the ability to walk following a fracture
- Improve overall strength conditioning, range of motion and endurance

Occupational therapists use their knowledge of the human body to assist the patient in achieving his/her desired level of function. By encouraging a patient’s participation in activities, the therapist can help the patient enhance performance, restore function and maintain health. Through the benefits of occupational therapy, an individual can once again be active int he community.
