A Conversation with Chad Mapes, Director
Q: Tell us about the Atkin Center for Outpatient Rehabilitation.
A: We offer traditional therapy disciplines – physical, occupational, massage and speech – to help adults recover from an illness, injury, surgery or other medical diagnoses. We support recovery and build patient strength and confidence to get you back to fuller functioning and living.
We are conveniently located on the campus of Jewish Senior Life, on Winton Road South near Route 590. We offer free parking, and transportation is available within Monroe County for ambulatory and/or wheelchair-bound clients, if needed.
Q: What types of injuries and illnesses do you treat?
A: We provide therapies for the treatment of orthopedic, neurological injuries, hand injury, post-concussion rehabilitation, and vertigo and balance assessments. We also treat patients with illnesses caused by stroke, Parkinson’s, head injuries, general neurological disorders, and more.
Q: Are there other therapy services you provide?
A: We have staff certified in specialty therapy programs such as LSVT Big & Loud, an intensive physical therapy program for people with Parkinson’s and other neurological disorders. We can help people regain physical strength and improve clarity in their speech.
We are one of the only outpatient providers in the area to provide VNG testing, which is a diagnostic tool used to help patients who suffer from balance or dizziness problems. We also offer Orthopedic and Spine Rehabilitation, and Manual Therapy.
Q: What other services do you offer?
A: We partner with Rochester Rehabilitation’s DriveOn program to help seniors drive safely, comfortably and stress-free. Our occupational therapists work with DriveOn’s experienced driver specialists to evaluate driving ability and create a customized driver training program to help older drivers maintain their driving independence.
Q: What makes your rehabilitation unique?
A: Our patients benefit from individualized treatments and 45 minute one-on-one therapy sessions with our highly trained and professional staff. Our team of professionals has more than 30 years of experience in rehabilitation therapy.
Q:What other services are available on the Jewish Senior Life campus?
A: Jewish Senior Life is a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) offering all levels of care on a single campus, from independent living to skilled nursing care. We also have a variety of community programs and services for people living outside of our campus such as physician house calls for the homebound, and companion care. We serve people of all ages, faiths and ethnic backgrounds.
