Meridian Manor has a brand new 2,400 square foot state-of-the-art inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation gym located conveniently on the east side of the building. There is a new handicap accessible parking area that leads to a separate entrance and provides convenient access for outpatient rehab and families.
The entrance to the rehabilitation gym allows for outpatients to easily enter and exit the building for follow-up rehab. This is important for their continuing aftercare with a familiar therapist who treated them during their stay at Meridian Manor. This convenient access to therapy is especially important, enabling us to continue to support our patients for a positive experience as they transition home.
The new facility has a completely functional occupational therapy (OT) suite which includes a mock apartment with activities of daily living such as a kitchen, bathroom, bed and laundry.
Physical therapy (PT) services utilize universal exercise equipment that is wheelchair accessible for upper and lower extremities. Equipment in our therapy gym includes, but is not limited to: a bariatric mat and parallel bars, standard parallel bars, exercise bikes, weights and exercise balls. A Chattanooga machine is available for e-stim, neurostimulation, transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) and patterned electrical neuromuscular stimulation (PENS).
Our muscle strength training programs for geriatric guests help to improve their strength and balance for a safer and more positive at-home lifestyle.
