Within our facility parents can access occupational therapy and audiology as well as speech therapy. We also collaborate with other professionals outside our facility within the community. Coordinated services ensure quality of care, while meeting the ever-changing needs of children and families.
Speech therapy sessions are usually individual, allowing the therapists to focus their full attention on the needs of each individual. On occasion, small groups of two to three young children may be formed to address social language needs.
When appropriate, consultations are provided to local schools for children and in the workplace for adults. Through our affiliation with PBMC, we work closely with physicians to provide a thoroughly integrated approach to therapy.
Pen Bay Healthcare is an integrated health care system. This enables PBSHC to follow adult patients from the acute stage of illness in PBMC to skilled nursing rehabilitation at the Knox Center or Quarry Hill and finally to our outpatient clinic as the patient’s recovery progresses.
