Our physical therapists work with patients to treat injuries and chronic conditions with exercise and movement. Our goal is to restore normal functioning whenever possible so that our patients can experience the activities they love.

For patients who have experienced a diminished ability to communicate due to their condition, we use a variety of exercises, audiovisual aids, and cutting-edge treatment protocols to empower our patients with speech.
At Upper East Side Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, we believe in the power of socialization and recreational activities as part of our efforts to restore health. Our therapeutic recreation program helps our patients work on mobility and other skills outside of their other speech, physical, or occupational therapy sessions, and it also gives them a chance to develop friendships essential to feeling joyful and self-confident.
Acute and chronic breathing conditions can be managed effectively by our respiratory therapists, who use respirators and medicine to ensure that our patients can breathe as effortlessly as possible.

For patients with a variety of more long-term, chronic illnesses, such as Alzheimer’s, cancer, cardiac disease, kidney failure, Parkinson’s, and other conditions will discover tremendous support as part of our palliative care program. Our goal is to make our patients as comfortable as possible, doing what we can to relieve stress and pain so that quality of life can be optimized.

Our goal is to make our patients comfortable during and after treatment, and to give them the strength and support they need for daily living.
We coordinate care and services with experienced hospice organizations to provide the highest quality hospice care to patients. Skilled and sensitive hospice professionals assist patients with physical pain management and address the emotional and spiritual needs of both the patient and family.
We can administer therapy intravenously, preventing air from diluting medication as it enters the bloodstream. It is the fastest way to deliver important pharmaceuticals to the body, and it is used for certain patients as deemed appropriate by our medical team.
For patients who are recovering from a heart attack, stroke, or dealing with heart disease, high cholesterol or blood pressure, or any other cardiac-related conditions, we offer exercise therapy and patient education to prevent future cardiac issues and further illness.
We use an interdisciplinary approach to managing pain, always with the goal of developing a treatment plan to improve quality of life. Patients may require pharmaceuticals, or may benefit from massage therapy or mental health services or something else. Depending on the situation, a number of treatments may be considered.
Enteral Nutrition Therapy
If a patient has difficulty eating, food may be provided through a tube to ensure proper nourishment. Enteral Nutrition Therapy is appropriate for patients who cannot swallow due to severe medical problems.

Family and Friends Transport Program
Your time with your family and friends is a big part of your rehabilitation journey. Our goal is to build that time into your day whenever possible. To that end, we have developed a Family and Friends Transport Program, allowing your guests an easy way to visit. You provide us with a time and day for their visit, and we will provide you with the accommodations you need to get them here.
Trips and Entertainment
