Ashton Place Rehabilitation & Care Center
We began our process with Ashton Place on a very bad note. Between staff racism and condescension and apparent disregard of care, we were distraught that our loved one was forced to stay here. HOWEVER, after many meetings with the CEO and Director of Nursing, we have found ways to compromise. I will say that upper management makes every effort to satisfy the requests of patients and families. I do not really think that there is any such thing as a "good" nursing home or rehab center, but I think that the management of Ashton Place is trying to make their facility better. They have a long way to go, but they are the first to admit that. I appreciate their efforts to make this a livable situation for all involved.

Love this place. The staff is very helpful and courteous. They take very good care of my father. They keep me well informed of his progress and needs.
Tips & Advices
At the first appointment with a physical therapist, Expect an overall assessment of your condition, which may include exercises to understand your range of motion, balance, and strength. Based on that information, the therapist can then design a regimen.
Physical therapists can work in a variety of environments. While many choose to work in a physical therapy clinic, others will operate out of hospitals and are also able to make house calls to help patients who need in-home assistance and rehabilitation.
Physical therapists can specialize in sports medicine, women's health, geriatric, neurologic, orthopedic​, pediatric, and cardiovascular and pulmonary conditions, among others.
See a physical therapist following a serious muscle or bone injury, especially if pain doesn't go away within a few days, is recurring and dull, or is frequent and sharp. Book an appointment if medication is not helping or if your doctor recommends it.
The majority of health insurance plans do include physical therapy treatment, but the amount covered and the co-pay for patients varies person-to-person. Medicare and workers’ compensation both cover physical therapy.
