Physical therapists offer Orthopedic post-op rehabilitation to help individuals regain mobility, strength, and balance. Our goal is to restore function to prior level. The team utilizes adaptive equipment for mobility to increase safety and decrease fall risk. We use specialized equipment and design programs to expedite the rehabilitation process. We also provide treatment of neck, back, muscle, joint pain and dysfunction.
This area of rehab focuses on restoring the ability to care for oneself with activities of daily living, such as: bathing, dressing, toileting, eating, and activities of leisure. We provide treatment of arm, hand, and wrist disorders, as well as visual deficits. OT will evaluate seating and positioning needs for comfort and to protect against pressure wounds and falls. Our Occupation Therapists perform home and community evaluations for individuals who plan to return to their homes, and give recommendations to assure safe discharge. They also provide transition training from skilled rehab to apartments within the Sarah Reed Community.
Speech therapy evaluates swallowing, communication, and cognitive disorders. The therapist reinforces safety concerns with activities of daily living to increase problem solving, and sequencing. Our on-site therapist is certified in deep pharyngeal nerve stimulation, a treatment which can assist individuals in being able to tolerate regular liquids.
This type of treatment is highly effective for upper respiratory and pulmonary diseases and disorders. We focus on increasing the resident’s ability to participate in active rehabilitation and reduce probability of hospitalization for common diseases such as pneumonia, COPD, and congestive heart failure.
