Rehabilitation Program

Looking for the best rehabilitation services on the Rockaway Peninsula and the New York metropolitan area! Search no more. Bishop MacLean Episcopal Nursing Home offers a complete rehabilitation program, including Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, and Audiology. We provide medically supervised rehabilitation for people recovering from strokes, surgery or injury as well as those requiring treatment for chronic conditions such as arthritis or osteoporosis. A licensed
physical/occupational therapist evaluates each resident and creates an individual treatment program based on each person's needs for regaining full or partial mobility under the supervision of a staff physiatrist. The therapists work with a rehabilitation aide on each floor to help residents overcome fears and heal body and mind together.

Short Term Rehabilitative Therapies


The Gait Trainer 2 with the unweighing hamess is the only treadmill with an instrumented deck that monitors and records audio and visual bio feedback to prompt residents into a proper gait pattern. Applications include: stroke; spinal chord injury; head injury; amputee; orthopedic and neurologic.

The Upper Body Cycle is a safe and effective total upper body exercise that incorporates two universally accepted and scientifically proven cycling resistance modes into a versatile ergometer. These diverse features meet the demands of any orthopedic, cardiac, or wellness rehabilitation program.

The Semi-Recumbent Cycle incorporates easy access, optimal positioning and two resistance modes. The step-through design makes it easy for cyclists with limited mobility to get in and out of each exercise position. A removable seat makes this piece of equipment wheelchair accessible and will meet the demands of any orthopedic, cardiac, wellness or general conditioning therapy program. All rehabilitation therapy programs are headed by and under the supervision of a staff physiatrist.

"When I came here, I could not sit, I could not stand, I couldn't even walk. I was a useless person. But, within three months the rehab team and prayers have made me whole. I am now able to sit, stand, walk and even dress myself. I am now able to get back home and function independently."
