Therapy

Our therapy gym is spacious, clean, well-lit, and encouraging. Our therapy team will work with you and your loved one to design a therapy program that will promote functioning at the highest level possible.

Success & Vision

At Bivins Pointe we understand each patient has unique and special needs, therapy team will work with each patient, their family and their healthcare provider to determine the best care and treatment plan. When the goal is to return home, we explore every detail about our patient’s prior living arrangements. Family members are encouraged to participate in the care so that they can help their loved one prepare for discharge.

When the plan is to stay in our facility once the therapy program is complete, we make sure that we work side-by- side with our nursing staff so that our patients can continue to function at their highest possible level to preserve their independence.
