Healthcare Services

For seniors in Salem and surrounding communities who are in need of intensive and personalized medical care for short periods, Salem Transitional Care is an excellent choice. Our trained skilled nursing staff strives for a high-level of personal care, perfect for individuals who require 24-hour monitoring of health needs. Many patient stays are less than three months and most frequently consist of guests who come directly from the hospital to recover from surgery or illness.

Salem Transitional Care skilled nursing staff, comprised of registered and practical nurses, as well as occupational, speech, and physical therapists, help restore seniors’ lives after physical trauma, such as a stroke, heart attack, broken hip, or knee replacement. Our skilled nursing team is ready to help with healing, rehabilitation, and a smooth transition back into a normal and healthy life.

Therapeutic rehabilitation will help you get your life back on track. If you’ve lost the ability to do even the most simple of tasks, our skilled physical, occupational, and speech therapy team in Salem, Oregon can help you gain back your independence.

Physical Therapy for seniors is a regarded practice for older adults from every level of physical ability to improve balance and strength, build confidence, and remain active. A number of people are familiar with physical therapy as a form of treatment to pursue after an accident, or to cope with a persistent health condition. For us, physical therapy is a way for individuals to maintain independence later in life.

At the hands of a trained and experienced physical therapist, one can work toward improving balance, strength, mobility, and overall fitness – all of which older adults may benefit from. Participating in regular physical therapy could contribute to improved physical abilities, which can also help older adults avoid falls.

Our Occupational Therapists work in tandem with our physical therapists to improve Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s). Occupational therapists work with you to develop and adopt a routine of beneficial daily activities based on your individual needs. We strive to get our patients back in control of life.

Speech Therapy can help teach patients to speak in a new way, with vocal exercises that will help them communicate more effectively. Speech therapy also focuses on cognitive restoration, chewing, and swallowing.
