Chapin Home for the Aging is one on New York’s leading facilities in short- term rehabilitation. Chapin Home offers 6 days a week therapy for residents requiring care for multiple medical needs following a hospitalization, and prior to returning home in order to meet the needs of each resident. Comprehensive, multidisciplinary teams create individualized programs to meet each patient's long or short-term needs. Our goal is to accommodate an enhanced therapy experience while providing excellent continuity of care.
Dynamic Physical, Occupational and Speech therapies provided by our experienced therapists, in conjunction with Chapin’s state of the art equipment, allows each of these therapies to work together for the rehabilitative benefit of the resident. Our Activities of Daily Living kitchen enables the therapists to concentrate on ADL skills with the resident in preparation for a successful return home.
Whether a resident is recovering from an accident, injury, surgery or illness, our active and dynamic rehabilitation team will assist them in achieving their rehab goals so they can return home as soon as possible. While we have many patients recovering from joint replacements, hip fractures and CVAs, we also treat amputations as well as cardiac, neurological and pulmonary diagnoses.
The spacious yet nurturing rehabilitation center at Chapin Home for the Aging offers residents access to highly advanced equipment and technology to enhance their recovery.
Under the supervision of certified physical and occupational therapists, residents utilize adaptive equipment and home management skills such as dressing, bed-making, car transfer, stair training and food preparation, to prepare for a safe return home. Our goal is to assist residents in regaining strength, mobility and confidence in order to make the transition to the home environment.
Chapin Home for the Aging offers residents and families an extensive education program which includes a review of home safety techniques, adaptive equipment needs and coordination with family and home care services.
