“Benefits of Home Rehab Therapies — Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy” is the topic of a program planned at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 18.

A physical therapist and an occupational therapist from the Visiting Nurse Association of Manchester & Southern New Hampshire, which is sponsoring the program, will discuss the different therapies that can be provided in your home, review rehab services and the differences between physical, occupational and speech therapies and talk about what to expect if a physician orders these. Questions are welcome.

A drumming circle with Nancy VanBenschoten will get underway at 1 p.m. Monday, Sept. 23. The center says drumming offers a fun way to connect with people, a chance to exercise and reduce stress, anxiety and depression, and improve joint mobility, posture and motor skills.

To be part of the circle, which is sponsored by Arete Rehab, sign up at the front desk or call 624-6533.

The front desk also is the place to sign up for an annual flu shot from the VNA’s registered nurses, who will be at the center from 1-2 p.m. Monday, Sept. 30. This is free for those who have Medicare Part B.

Free five-minute chair massages by a licensed therapist and free balance assessments by a physical therapist are on the schedule for 10 a.m. Tuesday. Both activities are sponsored by the Center for Physical Therapy and Exercise. To sign up, stop by the front desk or call 624-6533.
