Wellness The Mirador

Best rehab in the Bay Area? You’ve found it.

The key to senior rehabilitation services in League City, TX, is to focus in many directions at once. That is, look beyond specific and urgent physical rehabilitation needs to understand the attendant emotional, cognitive, social and spiritual challenges too. When all these gears work together, the body heals more cleanly and well, whether it’s speech therapy, physical therapy or occupational therapy skills you’re reacquiring. And when support and direction are provided in a dignified, nurturing and comfortable environment, you’re free to focus on getting more mental and physical value from each therapy session. The body just works better.

After surgery, injury or illness, we provide both short-term residential and outpatient rehabilitation services. Our medical director oversees patient care, and the staff includes registered nurses, nurse practitioners and a variety of certified specialists.

Wellness The Crossings

We’re only as good as your recovery.

When you leave for home, we know we’ve been successful. Regaining your strength and independence as quickly, safely and thoroughly as possible are our goals from the beginning. There will be times, of course, when you can’t fully recover from a bad break or tear. That’s when we’ll state our opinion, show you the alternatives, and let you help determine goals in your best interest. We’ll almost always attempt full recovery (unless the attempt would endanger your health in any way), of course. And we never forget that you’re the most important member of the rehab team.

Residency has its privileges.

As an Independent Living resident, you have priority access to the rehabilitation staff and services at The Crossings. If you have family or friends who need similar services and you’d like to refer them, you may do so. We accept patients directly from the greater Bay Area (and conceivably from anywhere in the U.S.) for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation services.

Rehabilitation FAQ

Physical therapy, to help you regain strength, mobility and balance. Occupational therapy, aimed at improving the ability to perform everyday tasks. And speech therapy, to enhance communication and eating or swallowing skills. Among our specialties are IV therapy and wound care.

Though similar in terms of helping to restore strength and mobility, occupational therapy helps you adapt to your social and physical environment through training or retraining (when necessary) in areas such as dressing, bathing, eating and grooming; activities for memory, orientation and cognitive integration; and exercises to maintain normal joint movement to reduce the effects of arthritis or other conditions.

Our skilled speech and language pathologists address a major concern that can emerge with aging in addition to communication issues, which is swallowing dysfunction. You’ll have treatment plans designed to help with your specific degree of language ability, give precise alternate communication strategies and, when appropriate, provide diet recommendations.

Your treatment plan will be individualized to address your condition and specific rehabilitation needs, based on medical certification by your doctor. After admission, the therapy team will meet to review your treatment plan and recommend a schedule of appropriate services. It would not be unusual for a healthy postoperative 64-year-old woman (for example, after a hip replacement) to have an hour of physical and occupational therapy every day, 6 times per week, for 3 weeks. On the other hand, a frail 88-year-old man recovering from the same surgery, with complications, might recover much more slowly, and a schedule of 20 minutes per day, alternating days if he gets too tired, may be more appropriate. We’ll work quite closely with the most important person on the team: you.

The team includes a doctor, nurse, social worker, dietician and appropriate therapists who’ll provide care, guide the rehabilitation process, and work in partnership with the resident – and often very successfully together with family members as well.
