Rehabilitation and therapy services

Our rehabilitation programs help participants restore abilities after an illness or injury. Rehabilitation services are available to current residents and those who need a short-term stay during their recovery period. 

Parkside Ellijay offers inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation, including occupational, speech and physical therapy.

Our programs allow participants to view and track their progress, gaining encouragement and momentum while in therapy.

A team of highly skilled professionals evaluate a participant’s needs and determine the best treatment plan for improvement. Plans may rely on a variety of restoration methods, such as speech, occupational and physical therapies – all offered by Parkside Ellijay. As a participant progresses, our team adjusts his or her plan.

Scheduling flexibility

Outpatient appointments are available seven days a week and adaptable to most agendas. Sessions range from 30 minutes to an hour.
