In order to offer a full spectrum of services that will meet the needs of those with intellectual and developmental disabilities, Millcreek Behavioral Health’s Home and Community Based Waiver Services affords those who engage in this programming the opportunity to partake in a number of therapy services.
Based solely on the needs, abilities, skills, and strengths of each person, a Plan of Care is developed for individuals who require therapeutic interventions. Any and all concerns, needs, and competencies are assessed prior to formulating this plan. Once that assessment is complete, it is then determined which of these services will be of the most help in improving a person’s overall quality of life.
The following therapy services are available and administered by qualified and experienced physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech pathologists, and hearing specialists:
Physical Therapy: Available to help individuals increase their mobile abilities, physical therapy is a great option that can enhance a person’s personal independence.
Occupational Therapy: An option for care that can improve a person’s performance and ability to partake in daily activities is occupational therapy. This therapy service focuses primarily on skill-building and bettering a person’s ability to function in a healthy manner.
Speech/Language Therapy: Engaging in speech/language therapy allows an individual to refine and improve his or her ability to communicate effectively with others.
Hearing Therapy: When a person partakes in hearing therapy, he or she is able to work with a hearing specialist to improve hearing abilities. This can include using and managing hearing aids, improving communication, and engaging in other rehabilitative services that can enhance the manner in which a person conveys audible information.
Each of these services is delivered with the intent to maintain the dignity of each individual. We, at Millcreek Behavioral Health, put forth every effort to ensure that any and all services received are appropriate and effective in enhancing the lives of those who receive them.
Lastly, these services are delivered in a variety of locations. We make therapy services mobile and easily accessible so as to avoid any obstacles or physical barriers that would otherwise prevent a person from receiving such valuable care.
