Wellness Program – Rhythms Life Enrichment

We aim to foster an inclusive culture where everyone is respected and involved, meeting them at their unique life stage.

Whether it’s painting sessions, energizing exercise classes, cognitive challenges, or soulful musical encounters, our diverse calendar ensures everyone can participate in an activity that aligns with their interests. Outside the community, our residents look forward to van excursions to museums, concerts, and shopping outings, further enriching their experiences with us.

Occupational Therapy

Rehabilitation for seniors

We take a resident-focused approach to helping residents get the care they need to be as independent as possible. Sometimes, that requires relearning how to do everyday tasks, and our dedicated staff is here to help them do that through occupational therapy that focuses on achieving maximum self-sufficiency and independence.

We offer mobility training to help residents perform basic household tasks such as cooking and dressing. Our occupational therapists also provide muscle-strengthening and range-of-motion training, assistance with thought organization to help with planning activities, training on how to conserve energy, and other specialized therapy.

Our occupational therapists also check to see if any modifications should be made to the residents’ homes to help them become more self-reliant in their daily routines.

Physical Therapy

Our physical therapy services help members of the Living Center Community regain function and take back control of their lives following surgery, joint replacement, injury, or the onset of long-term health conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, or COPD.

Sunny Vista’s board-certified physical therapists focus on making each resident’s physical tasks less daunting by improving their movement, boosting their strength, and relieving their pain. That takes exercise and a supportive environment to keep each resident on the path to recovery.

Our physical therapists guide and coach residents through stretches, core exercises, lifting weights, and walks. They don’t just focus on helping residents recover from a fall. Physical therapists also work to prevent future accidents through balance training, tailoring each exercise program to a resident’s unique needs.

Speech and Language Therapy

If a resident has a problem speaking or swallowing, the underlying reason could be physical, emotional, or psychological. So, our speech and language therapists perform the assessments and tests needed to diagnose what’s happening and to see what needs to be done to help a resident communicate more easily with others.

Our speech therapists can help people resume their ability to speak or work with them to find alternate ways for them to communicate. They also help people facing the emotional difficulties that come with slurred speech following a stroke, so those residents are more confident while communicating with others.

The Living Center offers language ability and cognitive retraining, rehabilitation to help regain the ability to swallow, and Vital Stem Therapy for patients who have difficulty swallowing.
