Pediatric Physical & Occupational Therapy Celebrates Grand Opening of Larger Facility in Nanuet

Published

on

NANUET, NY – Pediatric Physical and Occupational Therapy of Hudson Valley, PLLC recently moved from New City to 160 East Route 59 in Nanuet and celebrated with a ribbon cutting on November 8th . The new facility is significantly larger to help more children, provide more operating hours, and it has a state-of-the-art therapy gym with sensory specialty equipment, a rock wall, zip line, trampoline, and spider cage.

In addition to staff and friends, founder Linda Fuller welcomed Rockland County Executive Ed Day, Clarkstown Town Supervisor George Hoehmann, Clarkstown Councilman Don Franchino, Pascale Jean-Gilles, Outreach Director for NYS Senator Elijah Reichlin-Melnick, Nanuet Chamber President Jerry Tuchband as well as VP Risa Hoag and Treasurer George Mollo. After the cutting of the ribbon, Fuller gave a tour of the new facility complete with two private fine motor rooms, large center gym area, separate zone for infants and toddlers, and space for parent education workshops.

Pediatric physical therapy helps children develop or regain the skills they need to move their bodies in order to meet everyday challenges. This can include helping babies to crawl in order to retrieve their favorite toy that’s not in arm’s reach or retraining a child to negotiate stairs following a fractured femur from a fall. Pediatric occupational therapy helps children independently perform activities of daily living. Through the use of a variety of treatment approaches, OT goals include improving a child’s fine motor coordination, upper body strength and endurance, visual motor/visual perceptual skills, body and spatial awareness, motor planning, cognitive-adaptive skills and self-care abilities.

Pediatric Physical and Occupational Therapy of Hudson Valley was founded in 2005 to focus on helping children achieve their personal best through leading-edge therapeutic techniques and dedicated, one-on-one treatment sessions. Over the years, Fuller has incorporated innovative treatments like Intensive Physical Therapy, Spider Therapy, TheraTogs, and Whole-Body Vibration Therapy into her practice. In 2010, Fuller added occupational therapy to her practice
in order to provide a comprehensive therapeutic program to her clients under one roof. More information can be found at www.ptotkids.com

Published

on

The Colonel William F. Fox Memorial Saratoga Tree Nursery annual spring seedling sale is open to the public and runs until May 12. Each year, the nursery offers low-cost, New York-grown tree and shrub species for sale to encourage plantings that help conserve the state’s natural resources and foster the next generation of forests.

Trees provide a variety of benefits:

  • Absorbing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, making them a powerful tool in the fight against climate change;
  • Helping to lower heating and cooling costs;
  • Providing food and shelter for wildlife;
    Improving water quality by filtering runoff;
  • Preventing erosion;
  • Supplying a variety of wood products that support local economies; and
  • Increasing our overall health and well-being.

DEC’s tree nursery grows more than 50 conifer and hardwood species from local seed sources, creating seedlings that are well-suited to our state’s climate. They are available in bundles of 25 or more, plus there are several mixed species packets for those looking for a variety. Seedlings are a minimum of five inches tall and are one to three years old depending on the species. For more information including how to order, visit the Spring Seedling Sale webpage on DEC’s website. Some species sell out early, so it is recommended to place orders by phone for the most up-to-date availability information.

Free Seedlings Available for Youth Education Through the School Seedling Program
Applications are now being accepted for the nursery’s School Seedling Program. From now until March 31, schools and youth education organizations across New York State may apply to receive up to 50 free tree or shrub seedlings to plant with their students.

All schools (public, private, nursery, elementary, secondary, vocational, college or university), homeschool groups, and any youth education-based organization may apply, provided trees are planted within New York State. Individual homeschools must apply through a homeschool group, co-op, or other association. Seedlings are two to three years old, about four to 12 inches tall, and bare-root. There are three packets available – 50 white spruce, 25 red oak, or 30 mixed shrub species good for wildlife habitat – and each school or organization may only receive one packet per year. Visit DEC’s website for more information and to apply online. For assistance or questions, contact the Colonel William F. Fox Memorial Saratoga Tree Nursery at [email protected] or 518-581-1439.

Bailey’s Smokehouse in New City to Open on January 15th

Published

on

NEW CITY, NY: Bailey’s Smokehouse is located in the former D & D’s Restaurant and Pub in New City. The 150-seat restaurant, with two bars (one with about 20 seats, one with 10), black booths for more intimate seating and a smoker that holds 400 pounds of meat (what the restaurant is most famous for), will officially open on Jan. 15.

Lohud Food interviews General manager Paul Butler and owner Paul Bailey about the new Bailey’s Smokehouse in New City. While Bailey’s is most known for its meats — think ribs, brisket, pork— Butler wants diners to know there are plenty of other menu items to enjoy. The New City location, in fact, will feature items not found at the two Blauvelt locations, including rotisserie chicken, beef tips, fried shrimp in a basket, cauliflower, broccoli and a new salad called California with mixed greens, black beans, corn, red onion, grape tomatoes, carrots, blue cheese crumbles and ranch dressing.

Great article and photos from Lohud’s Jeanne Muchnick in the link HERE..
