Caretel specializes in rehabilitation. It is the main focus of the Turner House Inn. We very openly brag about the fact that we return most of our guests at Turner House to their homes. Don’t get us wrong, we are not being inhospitable. You just want to go home and we want to help. This is why the specialized therapy program at Caretel is called, “Send ‘Em HomeTherapy”. Medicare is very helpful in paying a good portion of the cost. The Caretel staff will help you navigate through Medicare and other health insurances to make sure you receive the maximum benefits.

Physical Therapy Room
The secret to excellent physical therapy is a well-equipped therapy room and a determined, highly-trained physical therapy staff. Caretel realized that one more element was necessary: motivation. When you have had a stroke, a hip replacement or a car accident, it tends to get you down at least a little. Caretel decided to create a physical therapy room that would be inspirational. It is easy to get motivated in the beautiful surroundings of the Henri Matisse Gallery.
The many windows overlook the landscaped court. Lights illuminate Matisse’s brilliantly-colored paintings. This is clearly no ordinary physical therapy room. Along with the best equipment and professional staff, you need to inspire and motivate a person to recover. The third leg is now on the recovery stool. The famous French artist, Henri Matisse, was chosen to help create a room that would inspire and motivate because his lively, brilliantly-colored paintings have inspired people for years. We hope you will agree that having a modern, well-equipped physical therapy room in an art gallery setting is just what the doctor ordered.
After people have had a stroke, hip replacement or a car accident, etc., they often need to learn alternative ways of performing regular household activities. A vital part of Caretel’s Send ‘Em Home Therapy program is teaching guests how to get along at home with slightly altered abilities.
The Cottage is also designed to motivate and inspire. It is has the appearance of a fairy tale cottage. But don’t let its attractiveness fool you. It has all the furniture and fixtures of a real house. Caretel’s trained, professional Occupational Therapist know just how to use this home-like setting to train guests to cook, wash clothes, and make their own bed so they can function at home successfully. Even after an episode of illness. Nothing is more important to the Send ‘Em Home Therapy program than retraining guests on these basic tasks. The Cottage is the perfect setting for this endeavor. If you are interested in seeing these facilities first hand, of course you are welcome. Caretel’s staff will be able to answer your questions. Remember we love to “Send ‘Em Home”.
