multiple therapy disciplines … all under one roof

This is convenient for caregivers and allows us to provide a true team approach to therapy.

L.I.F.E. Therapies

THERAPY TECHNICIANS

In our ongoing mission to provide the best quality of care, we now have therapy technicians to support our therapists. The technicians help the therapists with tasks like transferring clients from their wheelchair, guarding patients for balance, helping communicate treatment sessions to parents, keeping the treatment area and equipment clean, and much more!
