What's Happening

New therapy services offered at Good Shepherd Fairview Home  

The Outpatient Therapy department at Good Shepherd Fairview Home is proud to announce the start of a new program available to those individuals with Parkinson’s disease and other neurological disorders.  This program includes LSVT BIG™, with treatment provided by our Physical and Occupational Therapists, and LSVT LOUD™, provided by our Speech Therapists. Certified LSVT® therapists are excited to offer this diverse treatment approach to our community. This program is unlike traditional therapy methods and is backed by research and years of support from the National Institute of Health.

LSVT ®is an intensive program designed to challenge the impaired system with focus on teaching individuals the amount of effort required to produce normal movement and/or vocal quality. Improving sensory awareness is an important part of this program in order to help individuals recognize and alter their slow or small movements, or adjust the loudness or quality of their voice. This program will teach individuals to avoid inactivity and establish habits that will support a productive quality of life.

Goals of the BIG program include:

  • Improved range of motion
  • Fine and gross motor skill development
  • Flexibility
  • Stronger gait pattern with more fluid movements
  • Improved balance
  • Improved performance with activities of daily living

Goals of the LOUD program include:

  • Improved respiratory function
  • Healthy vocal loudness
  • Improved laryngeal function and articulation
  • Improved intonation

A typical therapy program provided by our LSVT® certified clinician is administered in 16 sessions over a one month period of time (4 individual sessions per week). Daily carryover assignments and daily homework are also a part of the program. LSVT BIG™ is often recommended as a combined service with your Physical Therapist and Occupational Therapist (2 sessions with PT/week and 2 sessions with OT/week). LSVT LOUD™ is administered by a certified Speech and Language Pathologist only and is at the same frequency as listed above.

LSVT programs are covered by Medicare and most insurance programs. (See or call us at 607-724-2477, ext. 3230 for more information.)

M-EALS Program

Residents at Good Shepherd Village at Endwell partnered with Homer Brink Elementary School and the Maine Endwell School District for their “Spartan Garden” project.  Produce grown in the garden was sold at a farm stand to benefit the Maine-Endwell Assisting Local Spartans (M-EALS) program that provides produce to families in need during the summer months.
