What sets the Waterford Rehab and Nursing Center’s Rehabilitation Program apart from our competitors? We offer speech, occupational, and physical therapy services 7 days per week in both in-patient and out-patient settings.

In addition, we provide complimentary transportation for out-patient rehab patients and for physician appointments.
