National Rehabilitation Awareness Week

National Rehabilitation Awareness Week

In honor of National Rehabilitation Awareness Week, MPA is highlighting our incredible Director of Rehab, Rebecca Cobbell, COTA/L.

What is your favorite part of the job?

My favorite part of my job is watching the therapists facilitate the process of recovery and discharging people home after a successful rehab stay. My team makes me proud as I watch them build bonds and earn the trust of the residents here. They work hard every day to teach and reteach people the most basic skills of life and they do this with compassion and dignity for the residents.

How many therapists are on the rehab team?

MPA has 12 therapists plus lots of PRN staff.
PTs – 2 (Regan & Jeanette)
PTAs- 2 (Odette & Ashley)
OTs – 2 (Nicole & Norman)
OTAs – 3 (Cindy, Lisa, Susan)
SLP – Cathy
Tech – Rachelle
We’ve got a LOT of consistent PRN help on the weekends (Steve PT, Monica PT, Tuhay PT, Henry OT, Gonzalo OT) that are invaluable to the team as well!

Special shoutout to Odette, PTA who has been working here for 12 years and Norman, OTR and Cindy, COTA who have been working here for 7 years!!

What makes working at Morristown Post Acute special?

The residents make MPA special. We are beyond lucky to be able to help the greatest generation maintain fulfilling and meaningful lives as they age gracefully and enjoy their twilight years.
