Specialized, Individual Restorative Programs

In the Bethel Home Restorative Department, we provide individual restorative programs set up by therapists, and also group exercise to maintain full body range of motion and strengthening. We work with our activities program to provide fun activities for the residents to participate in, and we encourage social interaction.

Experienced therapists to help with the programs

Our restorative program also works with therapists to provide our residents with proper equipment, including walkers, wheel chairs, cushions, and positioning devices to meet comfort and mobility needs. The ultimate goal of our restorative program is to help each resident function at their highest level in order to promote quality of life.
