Rehabilitation Services

Our experienced rehabilitation team is committed to providing outstanding results and excellent quality of care. Patients are empowered through individualized programs to reach goals of increased independence and ability.

For our residents, families are also encouraged to participate in therapy sessions, caregiver education, and training.

The therapists and services described below can be made available regardless of the length of stay. In other words, if a person needs only short-term rehab before being able to return home, we are available for and have a proven track record of success in such situations. A common scenario is when the hospital wants to discharge someone to a rehab hospital or extended care facility for additional therapy before going home. In most cases we are able to provide the necessary rehab locally in Rayne, which can save local families from the unnecessary stress, cost and inconvenience of a prolonged out of town hospital stay.

LSVT-Big is a research-proven exercise program which consists of repetitive, exaggerated movements that can help to counteract the slow movement that is one of the main motor symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease.  LSVT-Big therapy can also benefit anyone whose motor function has been affected by conditions such as Stroke, Multiple Sclerosis, Cerebral Palsy and Down Syndrome.  LSVT-Big promotes strength, motor learning and changes in brain function.  Patients using LSVT-Big have shown impressive progress including faster walking with bigger steps, improved balance and increased trunk rotation.
