Our Services


Our experienced rehabilitation team is committed to the quality of care for our residents. Patients are empowered through individualized programs to reach goals of increased independence. Patient families are also encouraged to participate in therapy sessions.

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy focuses on identification, prevention, and rehabilitation of individuals with physical impairment and pain, as well as future injury prevention. Following evaluation, the physical therapist develops an individualized treatment program.

Therapist duties can include:

  • Increasing strength and mobility in the body and lower extremities

  • Increasing motor control for residents who have suffered a stroke

  • Improving coordination, balance, and the ability to walk following a fracture

  • Improving overall strength, conditioning, and endurance

  • Teaching pain management

  • Teaching proper body mechanics to prevent injury

  • Promoting safety awareness for the well being of the resident

Occupational Therapy

Our occupational therapists use task directed activities to treat patients whose functional abilities and independence with activities of daily living have been impaired by illness, injury, or normal aging. Occupational therapy assists our patients in adapting to their social and physical environments by mastering tasks essential for daily living. Our occupational therapists may work with patients who have debilitating arthritic conditions or those with difficulty bathing, dressing, and other activities of daily living. They assist our patients with impaired vision and/or hearing to function well in their environment.

Areas of treatment may include:

  • Functional independence – eating bathing, toileting, homemaking, cooking

  • Maintenance of wellness – dressing, grooming

  • Prevention of further disability – home assessments and modifications, adaptive equipment

  • Increasing safety awareness

Speech Therapy

Our speech therapists provide multitude of services including assessment, education, and treatment for language, voice, articulation, and fluency disorders. Our treatment programs are directed towards improving communication skills and safe swallowing. We assist in rehabilitating patients who struggle with comprehension, memory, processing, and expression abilities. We also instruct the patient or the caregiver in the techniques ranging from head positioning to promoting safe swallowing at a slower rate to clearer speech. We also teach patients how to compensate if they cannot be rehabilitated to their prior level of performance. Patients receiving nutrition partially or exclusively via a feeding tube are evaluated for their potential to return to solid foods.

Speech therapists work to restore the following abilities:

  • Speech and voice clarity

  • Comprehension and verbal expression

  • Chewing and swallowing ability

  • Cognitive language skills, like memory, problem-solving, and abstract reasoning

  • Patient and family/caregiver education and training for managing ongoing difficulties with communication, cognition, and swallowing

Other Treatments

Bothell Health Care Rehabilitation Services has developed several treatment programs around the use of Therapeutic Modalities. The programs are based on scientific research to address the needs of aging adults and may be used to address the following conditions:

Pain Management  |  Swelling and Inflammation  |  Joint Replacement  |  Stroke Recovery    Contracture  |  Arthritis  |  Slow Healing Wounds  |  Bladder Control  |  Strength and Balance  
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome  |  Neuropathy  |  Muscle re-education.

These therapies are considered comfortable and pain-free for the vast majority of patients. 

Shortwave Diathermy

Uses electromagnetism to create deep tissue heating to help reduce pain, swelling, joint stiffness and muscle spasms, while increasing circulation and relaxation of muscle tissue. It may be used to treat symptoms associated with soft tissue injuries, slow healing wounds and arthritis, and connective tissue disorders such as scar tissue build-up and contractures. 

Electrical Stimulation

Uses comfortable electrical waveforms to help manage pain and muscle spasms, while re-educating muscles, increasing circulation and improving strength. It may be used to treat symptoms associated with a variety of conditions such as bladder control, stroke and joint replacement. 

Therapeutic Ultrasound

Uses sound waves to create a heating effect surface in the tissues for relief of pain, swelling and muscle spasms. It can also help increase circulation and flexibility associated with conditions such as contractures, bursitis and tendonitis.
