The Palisades Rehab team is comprised of highly trained therapists experienced in a range of disciplines. Aptly described as a family, our therapy team ensures that clients are fully educated about their condition, and that they feel welcome and supported during therapy visits. In addition, we support aftercare and therapy follow-through, encouraging clients to return for periodic check-ups or to participate in our wellness program.

Aging in Place Home Modifications
“Aging in place” is a catchphrase that describes baby boomers who are choosing to modify their existing home as they age, rather than move to assisted living environments. If you or someone you love is experiencing a decline in safety, or is frustrated by a lack of independence, the Palisades’ team can help. Our occupational therapy practitioners will come to your home, evaluate your environment and recommend adaptations to prevent injury or frustration.
Through this service, we focus on reducing falls, promoting a healthy lifestyle and teaching clients to safely carry out their activities of daily living. Palisades’ practitioners are a valuable asset to professional teams, and are experienced in working with clients and their caregivers, as well as architects and construction companies who help to carry out modifications. Call today to schedule your “Aging in Place” evaluation, or speak with a Palisades’ occupational therapy practitioner.
For most of us, driving is a way to stay connected to our world: to visit friends, go shopping and remain mobile. Unfortunately, aging can challenge our senses, along with physical and mental capabilities and ultimately may impact our ability to safely transport ourselves and others.
At Palisades Rehab, our occupational therapy practitioners have the expertise to assess vision, cognition, motor skills and perception. Through this evaluation, therapists can help older drivers compensate for life changes that impact their driving. And, when it’s time to give up driving, our OT team helps patients (1) adjust to the idea, (2) consider other forms of transportation, and (3) remain as independent and safe as possible.
Monthly Maintenance Program
Upon discharge from therapy services, we offer a monthly maintenance program to help you continue your path to good health. Talk to your therapist for more information!
Click to learn about Direct Access (DA)
At Palisades Rehab, we understand that things happen unexpectedly and that you may need to see a therapist before you’ve had the opportunity to see your physician. To assist with this, our facility participates in the Direct Access (DA) program. According to NJ Direct Access Law, you can see a physical therapist for up to 30 days before requiring a prescription for further treatment. NJ Direct Access allows you to begin your treatment program sooner so you can get back on your feet faster.
*While most health insurances cover physical therapy obtained by using Direct Access, plans differ. Please check with your insurance provider. Note: Medicare does not permit Direct Access.
