Feel and Function at Your Best
Peter Becker Community understands that just because aging is normal doesn’t mean one should endure pain and loss of function. The emphasis of our short-term Rehabilitation program is to restore mobility and help regain a high level of function and independence so our guests can return to their homes as quickly as possible. We are dedicated to improving, maintaining or restoring physical strength, cognition and mobility through physical, occupational, and speech therapy.
