We’re committed to Recovery and Rehabilitation

The pride of Washington Center is our reputation for amazing physical, occupational and speech therapy. Helping our short term residents return to full independence sooner and more completely drives this team to excellence. And keeping our residents physically fit promotes a longer, healthier, happier life.

We offer therapy six days a week in a state of the art facility where our team of professionals employ the latest techniques and equipment to achieve startling results. And each participant works one on one with their therapist during each session. Every patient has a custom plan developed just for them. That plan considers your doctor’s instructions, your pre-surgical condition or physical abilities when you arrive, your post-surgical condition, individual goals, tolerance for discomfort during therapy, personal attitude and more.

The rewards of therapy, even when it’s difficult, are priceless and we make every effort to see that therapy sessions are productive yet enjoyable. At Washington we “work the whole patient”. We do more than the focused rehabilitation prescribed by your doctor. We work with each patient to improve muscle tone and strength, joint mobility, posture, cardio-vascular and pulmonary function, mobility and pain relief. And we make sure that our patients regain as many of the skills they’ll need for independent living as possible.

A little assistance and a lot of independence.

At the Washington Center, we believe that people who decide to move into an Adult Home should look forward to that day enthusiastically. It’s the start of a new and exciting chapter in your life, shared with good friends who have made the same decision. And our Adult Home, the Argyle Center for Independent Living, is the kind of place you’ll look forward to living in. Our residents here need a little more care and assistance with the tasks of daily living than they can provide for themselves, but otherwise live fully independent lives.

Located within the facility, the residents of the Argyle Center have access to the rehabilitation facilities, grounds and other amenities we offer, yet enjoy their own space as well, remaining as independent as possible for as long as possible, while their family members enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing that assistance is on-site 24 hours a day.

If you or a loved one needs the reassurance and care that round the clock assistance can provide but are otherwise living an independent lifestyle, we invite you to stop in for a visit, meet the other residents, and see if we might be just the place you’re looking for.

Some of the most vibrant members of the Washington Center community are “commuters” - adults who need medically supervised attention during the day, but who have the necessary support structure to continue spending nights and weekends living at home. Participants in our ADCC are a mix of folks who simply enjoy the atmosphere and friendships they’ve made here, and others who may need a more attentive helping hand close by.

While our participants are enjoying the friendships and activities at the Center, our staff is providing all the help that their families and care-givers might need, like scheduling medical appointments and arranging the necessary transportation, coordinating referrals, and helping with insurance issues.

We invite anyone who may be interested in our adult ca care program to visit us and talk with our medical and social work staff to see if the Washington Center Adult Day Health Care program is right for your loved one.

We never lose sight of the fact that nearly 120 people have chosen to make our facility their home.

We encourage residents to decorate their rooms and to make their space an expression of themselves. And we do our part to make everyone’s life as comfortable and convenient as possible.

Both short and long-term residents enjoy all of this, and more:

Beautifully landscaped grounds with an enclosed courtyard, just perfect for bare feet in the summer

Therapeutic recreation is both enjoyable and engaging. Developed in a collaboration of our therapy and recreation teams, it furthers physical and occupational therapy and makes it a fun part of daily life here.

Courtesy transportation is provided by our own fleet of custom vans, to take residents to outside medical appointments, outings, to pick up and return participants in our adult day care program and even to pick up family members who need a ride to come and visit a resident.

A discreet security system that ensures that the building is safe from unauthorized entry. It also protects those residents who need careful monitoring from finding themselves in an unfamiliar area of the building, or off the grounds.

And of course we provide toiletries and bath amenities, the services of a beautician and barber, complimentary laundry service, wi-fi and individual cable television for each resident.
