Physical Therapy:

Physical therapists are experts in movement and gross motor function of the spine, upper and lower extremities. They assess and treat diseases and disorders of the musculoskeletal and neuromuscular systems; and provide care to restore normal movement and function.

We have the Quadriciser: an innovative approach to improving neurological recovery. The corner stone of our center, the Quadriciser is a passive, active isometric, motorized therapy system designed to exercise upper and lower body extremities.

Occupational Therapy:

Occupational Therapy is a therapeutic self-care, work, and leisure activities to increase independent function, enhance development, prevent disabilities, and maximize safety. It may include adaptation of task or environment to achieve maximum independence and to improve quality of life.

Short Term Rehabilitation:

Luther Manor Communities is a dually certified skilled and intermediate care facility in the heart of Dubuque. The facility is dedicated to providing post-acute and long-term care, rehabilitation and respite care in a homelike environment.

An interdisciplinary approach to patient care assists residents to attain or maintain his/her highest practical level of physical, mental, spiritual, and psychological being in an environment that enhances a person's quality of life.

Skilled care aims at restoring function, relieving pain, promoting healing or preventing disability. Skilled nursing is often used for acute, short stays up to 100 days, after a qualifying 3 overnight stay in an acute hospital bed. Services and staff include: physical, occupational, speech therapy, nursing care, dietitians and dietary staff, pharmacy services, social service coordinators, activity professionals, and managers who work closely with residents and families to achieve a common goal of maintaining maximum level of care and well-being. Many residents are able to return home or to a higher level of function after a comprehensive skilled program.

Speech Therapy:

Speech-Language Pathologists are experts in the assessment and treatment of disorders of the voice, written and spoken communication, and cognitive and reasoning deficits. These can be a result of disease or injury to the brain such as a stoke. They also evaluate and treat swallowing disorders.
