Rehabilitation & Therapy
Outpatient Rehab Services: Innovation in Rehabilitation
Hearthstone residents are afforded access to outpatient rehabilitation services from AgeSTRONG by Consonus. Each person’s individual needs are assessed and a treatment plan is designed to promote the greatest possible degree of function and independence. Medicare and most private insurance is accepted with a physician’s order.
Physical Therapy interventions are often indicated for people experiencing difficulty with movement because of pain, weakness and/or loss of balance. Therapists have specialty training in fall prevention and use a variety of treatment modalities and interventions to regain and improve movement.
Specializing in helping to achieve the greatest level of ease and independence, Occupational Therapists offer tools for navigating daily functional activities, leisure activities and self care.
Speech Language Pathology
If difficulties with speaking, swallowing or memory are noticed, a visit with a speech language pathologist may be helpful. Treatments may focus on increasing intelligibility of speech, developing strategies for problem solving or improving safety via motor strengthening and/or diet modification.
As a long-time Green Lake resident, when I began to explore retirement living communities, The Hearthstone quickly became the perfect choice. I have met so many wonderful and interesting people here. I enjoy having a bistro in my building and access to so many excellent fitness classes, movies, educational classes and other activities offered. I made the best decision for me, and it is a gift to my children as well. They are grateful that I reside is such a safe, caring and supporting community and so am I.
Our decision to move to Cove West at the Hearthstone took several years. We were specifically looking for a non-profit CCRC in order to meet any future healthcare needs. The Hearthstone’s well-established reputation stood out as did the Green Lake location, which in our opinion is unmatched in the Seattle area. All of the community's amenities and the newly-built (at the time) Cove West sealed the deal. Last but not least, we have found true community with our neighbors.
We lived separately and happily at the Hearthstone for several years, and we still consider our individual moves here to be very good decisions. We met at dinner one evening and thoroughly enjoyed each other’s company. As a result, the second, totally unexpected decision we made to move in together was another very good decision. Together, we have found something we thought was lost forever. Not everyone finds love at eighty-one. We wouldn’t have either had one of us not moved to The Hearthstone.
I love living at The Hearthstone and in the wonderful Green Lake neighborhood. My fellow residents and I make up a close-knit community in which there are countless opportunities to improve our physical, mental and spiritual well-being. And the food is good too!
We love calling the Hearthstone our home, as does our dog Dosey, who is SO happy living just one block from Green Lake park. Exercise classes and the well-equipped gym keep us physically active. Music trivia and local excursions are fun. The staff supports our daily living with maintenance, cleaning, rides, trips, humor and kindness. We feel lucky to live here.
It is all about community at The Hearthstone and not just the Green Lake neighborhood community. While we love living in such a vibrant neighborhood, it is the true sense of community with other residents and staff members that makes The Hearthstone so special.
