PRN Physical and Occupation Therapy at Loudonville Assisted Living
For the past four years Karen and Chris have been caring for Loudonville’s residents within our community, delivering state-of-the-art physical and occupational therapy services. Due to the unique set-up of being based in Loudonville, residents can participate in services at their convenience and in their own home. Karen says “I am able to make multiple attempts to see a patient for maximum benefits of therapy services throughout the day as needed. If a patient is not feeling well in the morning and wishes for an afternoon session instead, I am typically able to accommodate their wishes due to a flexible schedule. I continue to focus on delivery of therapy services with quality treatment techniques, in addition to fun activities to obtain desired outcomes.” Physical and Occupational therapy services at Loudonville provides residents the opportunity for an improved quality of life and function.
