oasis-730x350-12outpatient

Oasis Pavilion is the only facility in Casa Grande, Arizona that offers outpatient therapy. Our patients can continue living in their own homes, and they visit us for speech, occupational, or physical therapy as needed. Our outpatient program provides our patients with the freedom to continue with their lifestyle, but also provides them with the therapy they need to be healthy. We promote health and wellness, and we work to restore each patient to their highest level of functionality.

Physical Therapy

Our physical therapy team works with each resident to reach their highest functional level of independence. Our physical therapy programs focus on identification and rehabilitation of individuals with physical impairment and pain, as well as future injury prevention. Following evaluation, our experienced physical therapists develop an individualized treatment program. The goal is to achieve safety in a variety of areas.

Areas of treatment focus may include:

  • Increasing strength and mobility in the body and lower extremities
  • Increasing motor control for a resident who has suffered a stroke
  • Improving coordination, balance and the ability to walk following a fracture
  • Improving overall strength conditioning, range of motion and endurance
  • Managing pain
  • Teaching proper body mechanics to prevent injury
  • Promoting safety awareness for the well being of the resident

Occupational Therapy

Our professional occupational therapists use task-directed activities in the treatment of our residents whose functional abilities, daily activities, and independence have been impaired by illness, injury, or aging.

Occupational therapy assists our residents in adapting to their social and physical environment by mastering tasks essential for daily living. Our occupational therapists work with residents who have debilitating arthritic conditions and those with difficulty bathing, dressing, and other activities of daily living. They assist residents with impaired vision and/or hearing to function well in their environment.

Areas of treatment may include:

  • Functional independence: eating, bathing, toileting, homemaking, cooking, etc.
  • Maintenance of wellness: dressing and grooming
  • Prevention of further disability: home assessments and modifications, adaptive equipment
  • Increasing safety awareness

Speech Therapy

Our speech therapists provide a range of interventions to assess and help restore abilities in the areas of communication, swallowing, and cognition. Treatment programs are designed to help residents affected by stroke, brain injury, dementia, and other neurological disorders. Our professionals also work with residents suffering from hearing impairment, respiratory illnesses, and complex medical conditions.

Areas of treatment focus may include:

  • Improving speech and voice clarity
  • Increasing comprehension and verbal expression
  • Improving chewing and swallowing ability
  • Maximizing cognitive language skills: memory, problem solving, and abstract reasoning
  • Resident and family/caregiver education and training for managing ongoing difficulties with communication, cognition, and swallowing
