Whether you need physical therapy for your recent hip, knee or back surgery, time to recover from a fall or help dealing with a medical condition, our short-term inpatient therapy experience is the key. Our facility is recognized as having the most clinically advanced therapy department in Buffalo. Our expert therapists create a customized treatment plan and work with the resident to rebuild strength and improve range of motion, helping to regain functional mobility. Our entire team supports our residents’ wishes to return to their daily routines at home and get back to doing what they love!

Our dedicated subacute unit is entirely self-contained and features beautiful private and semi-private rooms, a cutting edge rehab gym, and concierge services to ensure that our patients needs are being met at all times.

Among the disciplines of physical, occupational, and speech language therapy, our team has developed various programs to meet the needs of our patients with multiple medical challenges including:

Orthopedic Subacute Rehabilitation:

Hip fractures in the elderly population account for 350,000 hospitalizations each year and 60,000 nursing home admissions. Our caregivers recognize the consequences of osteoporosis and the need for appropriate therapeutic interventions to help with not only strengthening but also flexibility and balance. Those who undergo total knee or hip replacement require a skilled clinician who understands not only the precautions but also the expectations and can design and implement an appropriate treatment program. We here at Williamsville Suburban Nursing Home are capable of dealing with people that have undergone hip replacements and are in need of expert care, attention and sub-acute rehabilitation.

Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation:

Shortness of breath (dyspnea) is a common feature of many cardiopulmonary conditions. Our therapists recognize the need to address a patient’s functional needs with these limitations in mind. We also routinely instruct patients in various techniques to relieve some of the distress of dyspnea.

Neurological Rehabilitation:

After a neurological event (CVA, TIA, hemorrhagic stroke, Parkinson’s disease, etc.) patients require specialized care to have the best chance at restoring their function.

Fall Prevention:

One third of all seniors over the age of 65 have at least one fall per year. Our therapy staff is educated in identifying and addressing fall risk factors. Our therapists do this by not only training patients in the use of devices to assist but also by improving the patient’s balance and coordination abilities.

We also specialize in:

  • Respiratory Care
  • Tracheostomy Care
  • Dementia Care
  • Palliative Care
  • Bariatric Care
  • Wound Care
