As Rehabilitation Professionals with over 40 years combined rehabilitation experience with the aging population, and seeing a shift in healthcare and reimbursement for services, we wanted to give those we work with greater options for assistance.
We wanted to reach out to any individual and offer him/her support as he/she noticed changes in abilities.
Thus began our parent company, LKY Therapies, LLC.
Easy to use products that help people maintain/enhance their skills as they age.
Movies and Music offers tools to stimulate memories and conversation through interactive viewing of classic movie musicals. Whether you’re a rehabilitation
professional, classroom teacher, or family looking to reminisce, this is a fun and engaging activity for everyone.
A PERSONAL HISTORY: A book of photographs and stories that spans the life and growth of your family. A great keepsake of lasting memories
ABOUT... fills in every area of need. Everyone working with your loved one will have the tools they need to more effectively complete daily care. We also include photos and personal history to increase communication, build meaningful relationships and promote independence.
Self-improvement classes in memory enhancement and social communication to maximize abilities, promote a sense of well-being and autonomy, within a familiar environment.
