Short-term Rehabilitation

Walking with assistance"I was a patient at Edgewater after a knee replacement. I have suggested Edgewater to several people since. The staff is welcoming and more than helpful. One will feel safe and cared for instantly. Physical therapy is difficult after a knee replacement, and the professional therapists take it seriously with one major goal...to get you on your feet and ready for home. Edgewater will be a positive experience for any patient." - Lyn O., Grimes
