Life Therapy and Wellness
A simple accident like tripping on a rug or slipping on a wet floor can change your life. In fact, falls are responsible for 90% of injury-related ER and hospital visits for those aged 65+. Falling can lead to a broken bone, which thousands of seniors experience each year. For seniors, a broken bone can also start more serious health problems and lead to long-term disability. That's why at Evergreen Senior Living Orland Park, we empower our residents to take control of their health, well-being, and quality of life with services like Life Therapy and Wellness .
Life Therapy and Wellness by Select Rehabilitation is a program designed to help our seniors live life to the fullest. Select Rehab includes therapists specializing in physical activities, daily occupational tasks, and speech! The therapists at Select Rehab apply a holistic approach that supports successful aging and assists individuals by incorporating the many aspects of wellness into your senior's day-to-day life.
Life Therapy and Wellness provided by Select Rehab has also introduced VirtuSense to the ESL Orland Park community.
