Rehabilitation Services

Some of the most exciting things we do take place every day in our Rehabilitation Therapy Center. Our in-house therapists and nursing staff work as partners to treat residents who may have lost strength and mobility due to illness, trauma, or surgery.

All of our therapists are highly trained and certified and work exclusively for Canyon Oaks.

We provide in-patient therapy services six days a week. Upon admission, our team will consult with your physician and create a personalized therapy program specific for your needs and desires.
