Your Community Physical and Occupational Therapy Specialists




The Wells Nursing Home's Rehab Department provides Physical and Occupational Therapy services not only to our inpatient, nursing home residents; but also to members of the community on an outpatient basis.

Our mission is to provide individualized examination and treatment to both our outpatients and inpatients in order to prevent or correct pain and further injury. By making patients as comfortable as possible with a friendly environment, treatments are more effective and enjoyable. We are proud of the community we serve as well as our ability to meet the physical and occupational therapy needs of our patients.

The Wells Nursing Home's Rehab Staff is a friendly, professional, community minded and highly trained group of individuals who pride themselves in providing quality services. Our staff includes both physical therapists and physical therapist assistants who have specialized training in McKenzie mechanical diagnosis/treatment of neck/thoracic/low back pain, Myofascial Release, sports medicine and geriatric conditions.
We also provide occupational therapy services for inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation. 
Our Director of Rehab is William J. Betts, PT.   

The Outpatient Rehab Department is open Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.
Initial outpatient physical therapy evaluations may be scheduled between 7 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., as this first visit requires one full hour.  Follow-up outpatient  PT appointments may be scheduled between 7 a.m. until 5 p.m. as subsequent treatment sessions typically require one half-hour to forty-five minutes of one-on-one care with the therapist. Typically, follow-up treatments are provided three days per week to achieve your physical therapy goals. Occasionally, follow-up treatments may be scheduled five days per week as special conditions require.
Initial occupational therapy evaluations may be scheduled between 8:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., as this first visit requires one full hour.  Follow up appointments typically require one half-hour to forty-five minutes and may be scheduled between 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. 
The initial outpatient evaluation is scheduled in advance and typically lasts approximately one hour. At the time of the evaluation, please bring the physical/ occupational therapy prescription from the doctor and your insurance cards. Follow-up treatments may be scheduled after the initial evaluation and typically last one-half hour to one hour, depending on the condition being treated.  We will attempt to accommodate your schedule within our normal business hours, however it is recommended to schedule follow up treatment sessions at the time of your initial evaluation if your schedule does not allow for flexibility. 
Most major insurances are accepted such as MVP, CDPHP, Medicare, Medicaid, Blue Shield of Northeastern NY, Empire Blue Cross, Worker’s Compensation Carrier’s and No- Fault. Any co-payment required by your insurance carrier is expected at the time of the service.
Typical attire for physical therapy includes sneakers or comfortable rubber sole shoes and comfortable clothes that allow access to the area(s) being treated. Typically, gym pants/ sweat pants and a t-shirt are the most appropriate attire.
