Many people are familiar with physical therapists’ work helping patients with orthopedic problems, such as low back pain or knee and hip surgeries, to reduce pain and regain function. Others may be aware of the treatment that physical therapists provide to assist patients recovering from a stroke in learning to use their limbs and walk again. Physical therapists are primarily concerned with the remediation of impairments, disabilities and promotion of mobility, functional ability, quality of life and movement potential through examination, evaluation, diagnosis and physical intervention.
Occupational therapy is the holistic intervention in many areas of occupation such as: activities of daily living (ADLs) including: bathing, dressing, grooming; instrumental activities of living, such as: home and financial management, rest and sleep, education, work, play, leisure and social participation. With a thorough evaluation, occupational therapists develop collaborative goals to identify strengths and deficits and address barriers that hinder performance in multiple areas. Occupational therapy interventions include helping people learn how to compensate and/or regain skills in order to lead a full and productive life.
Speech language pathology (Speech Therapy) is the study, diagnosis, and treatment of defects and disorders of the voice and of spoken and written communication. Speech therapy also evaluates and treats neurological and physical disorders and conditions caused by an injury or illness, such as Dysphagia (problems swallowing), Apraxia (disorder of motor planning) and Dysarthria (motor speech disorder). Treatment goals include reducing the disability, educating and counseling on how to cope with the stress associated with speech and communication disorders.
- You were admitted to the hospital for a period of time for either a surgery, illness or injury and need additional care in order to regain a full recovery.
- Your doctor has determined that you need Skilled Nursing, also called Short-term Rehabilitation, Sub-Acute, Extended Care or Post-Acute Care.
- When you arrive to our Skilled Nursing Facility, you will be evaluated by Nursing and Therapy. A treatment plan will be created specifically for you to achieve your goals.
- Expect therapy to take up most of the day, sometimes twice a day.
- The amount of time you will spend in post-acute rehabilitation is determined by your diagnosis and treatment plan.
- Our care team is reporting your progress to your physician, you and your family regularly. Notice how much stronger you are getting every day!
- Before you are discharged, we will meet with you to go over your progress, recommend additional equipment, like a walker or cane (if needed) and will provide discharge instructions.
- A Therapist will give you tips on how to stay safe at home and prevent falls and re-injury. A Therapist may perform a home visit to make recommendations and suggest modifications before discharge.
- You will most likely be given home exercises or recommend additional therapy upon returning home. We encourage you to follow your discharge instructions and maintain the success from your therapy.
- Congratulations on your success! You have completed therapy and have safely transitioned home.
