Ascend to Your Best Life

Ascend Rehabilitation provides a wide range of traditional and specialty therapy and wellness programs for older adults through a comprehensive continuum of care. Wherever you are in your health and wellness journey, we’ll meet you there and stay with you every step of the way. 

We offer inpatient, outpatient, and home-based services, as well as specialty programs to address specific needs of seniors and fitness and wellness programs for community members. Our goal is to keep older adults safe, active and independent. 

Our highly-individualized plans, typically covered by insurance and ordered by physicians, promote independence and safety. 


Physical therapy improves quality of life by restoring the ability to move. Our physical therapists focus on posture, balance, strength, pain management, ability to get in and out of bed and chairs, walking and navigating stairs without fear of falling.


Occupational therapy maximizes seniors’ abilities to manage daily activities, including bathing, dressing and household tasks like cooking, cleaning or money management. By achieving greater independence and freedom, older adults confidently participate in more activities of choice and engage in social pursuits. 


Speech therapy focuses on the ability to speak, understand and swallow. Communicating wants and needs and the ability to enjoy a meal while socializing with others are critical for a fulfilling life. 


Specialty programs include:

  • Balance – Falls and loss of balance are not a normal part of the aging process. Improve balance components and function to reduce environmental fall hazards. 
  • Massage – Massage significantly improves function and flexibility, decreases stress and anxiety, relieves pain, enhances circulation and improves sleep. We offer individualized massage therapy services, including geriatric, relaxation, deep tissue, comfort touch, aromatherapy and more. 
  • Fitness and Wellness – Fitness increases energy, builds bone density, lowers risk of dementia, eases effects of arthritis, increases lean muscle and improves mood and sleep. We offer both individual and group fitness options. 
  • Aquatic Therapy – The physical properties of water enhance healing and function. Aquatic classes or open swim time are offered to help clients improve physical flexibility, mobility, and muscle strength, and alleviate joint stress, pain and swelling.
  • Cognitive Care – Engaging in activities that support health cognition enhances reasoning and memory skills, maximizes safety and independence and improves self-confidence in everyday tasks. 
  • Pain Management – Pain can be debilitating and affect overall quality of life. Manual therapy techniques, strengthening exercises, heat/cold/electrical stimulation, modalities and education can help manage symptoms. 
  • Dysphagia (Difficulty Swallowing) – We can determine the scope and severity of swallowing concerns and implement treatment options including exercise, special eating techniques or dietary changes. We are certified in VitalStim® electrical stimulation therapy.
