Meet Our Rehab Director Lincy Philip
Lincy Phillip has worked as our Lead Therapist since 2019 and became the Director of Rehabilitation at Oakwood Healthcare in July 2020. Lincy is an extremely enthusiastic and passionate Physical Therapist who is dedicated to supporting our residents and patients with strong rehabilitative care.
Lincy now lives in Montgomery County with her husband, daughter, and French bulldog Bailey. She graduated from the University of the Sciences in 2013 with a doctorate in Physical Therapy and a bachelor’s degree in Health Sciences, and forged a career path practicing in Acute Care and Skilled Nursing Facilities in both PA and in NJ. There she found her passion within geriatrics, focusing on rehabilitating and maintaining functional mobility within the elderly population. Over time, she has honed the various rehabilitative skills required to optimize individuals to their maximum rehab potential with the goal for a safe discharge to their previous lifestyle and setting. Lincy is grateful to her parents who instilled in her a deep respect for her elders.
“At Oakwood Healthcare, we aim to make a difference in someone’s life so that they can return home with a newfound sense of accomplishment, motivating them to be able to get stronger and safely return to the community, both mentally and physically, and as independently as possible,” says Lincy.
Lincy is incredibly proud of her rehab team, who puts forth their best effort each and every day to ensure that our residents receive the best rehab care, treating the resident as a person and not just their impairment. The entire rehab team is committed to ensuring residents are involved in all aspects of their care, starting from the initial evaluation. Discharge planning is discussed right from the beginning so that the goals set by both patient and therapist are geared towards discharging safely back to the community.
