Work is under way on a $2.4 million aquatic therapy center slated to open by 2014 at Cedar Village, a non-profit retirement community in Mason.
The new center will boast rehabilitation and training features on par with those found at the Cincinnati Bengals’ training facility, Ohio State’s Athletic Department and the Cleveland Clinic, according to Cedar Village.
Plans call for includes two warm-water pools for individual therapy that will have floors that can be raised and lowered to allow easy access for those using walkers and wheelchairs. The pools will also have floors that can double as treadmills, going as fast as 8.5 mph.
A larger warm-water pool will offer group therapy, aerobics classes and lap swimming.
The facility will be named The Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati Aquatic Therapy Center, to honor its largest donor.
Cedar Village, located at 5467 Cedar Village Drive in Mason, offers independent and assisted living apartments as well as short-term rehabilitation and long-term care.
