Rehabilitation Therapy

River Bluff Nursing Home proudly partners with Genesis Rehab Services to provide superior individualized rehabilitation services to qualifying residents of Winnebago County. Rehabilitation can assist residents in regaining their highest level of functioning. Residents make appropriate recoveries through physical, occupational and/or speech therapies.

  2. Adaptive techniques or equipment to overcome physical disabilities
  3. Strengthening and coordination exercises
  4. Exercises to maintain normal joint movement

  1. Recovery of speech, language and memory skills
  2. Verbal and non-verbal communication
