Often residents needing short-term assistance are recovering

from an injury or illness and may need routine therapy as part of

their healing process as prescribed by their physician.  We have an

on-site licensed therapist and facility at Haywood Lodge.  This

service allows the resident to literally 'go just down the hall' to

therapy, removing the need to schedule, and drive to outside

appointments. ...more on In-House, Licensed Therapy.
