Recovery from surgery such as a hip or knee replacement or a medical event such as a stroke can move along much more quickly in a rehabilitation setting. Nursing care combined with rehabilitation services are best suited to ensure smooth transitions from hospital to care facility and from care facility to home.
Our Therapeutic Approach
Our therapists are aware of the challenges residents face when they begin a course of therapy to regain skills and abilities after orthopedic replacement surgery. The days can be tiring and discouraging at times. That’s why our therapists take a kind and steady approach to motivate each resident to progress and recover as fully as possible after an injury, medical event or surgery.
Our physical therapists treat residents with both firmness and encouragement as they progress with the hard work needed to regain strength and mobility after an illness or surgery. We develop an individualized therapy plan for each rehab patient that respects the individual challenges facing each patient, with a goal of ensuring a smooth transition home.
Our occupational therapists focus on helping our residents eventually manage as independently as they can the activities of daily living. We work with our patients on the skills necessary for walking, bathing, dressing, eating and other common household activities, again with a goal of making the return home safe and comfortable.
Going home without a plan is like leaving town without a map! Prior to discharge from rehabilitation, we conduct a home evaluation and assess what needs to be done to help ensure that going home will include the modifications and assistance necessary for a safe return.
