Getting Better and Going Home
One of our primary goals at the Center on Aging and Health is to help our residents to get better and return home as soon as possible. Our staff and health care personnel are focused on developing a personalized care plan for each resident and providing the care that will accomplish this goal. We believe that our family culture along with the continuing focus of everyone on our foundational values – Compassion, Accountability, Reliability, Integrity, Nurturing, Growth – enable us to help our residents and patients achieve better outcomes more quickly and with better results.
Short-term rehabilitation programs help patients achieve their maximum functional capacity and get back to their homes and community in the shortest time possible. To achieve this goal, patients receive Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy and Speech Therapy from compassionate and highly skilled therapists. Therapists are part of a team that includes physicians, nurses, social workers and nutritionists, who work with the patient and family members to develop an individualized care plan.
We provide rehabilitation treatment to individuals who have experienced acute trauma, sickness, or illness which include:
- Neurological conditions, such as strokes, balance disorders, and Parkinson’s Disease
- Orthopedic rehabilitation, including fractures, orthopedic injuries, and joint replacements
- Amputations and prosthetic rehabilitation
- Accident trauma
- Corrective surgery
- Cardiopulmonary rehabilitation
- Nutritional deficiencies
Our Rehabilitation Staff works with residents seven days a week to improve the skills needed to participate in daily living, such as: personal care; home management and meal preparation; transfer and gait training, therapeutic and balance exercises; restorative feeding; and, speech and swallowing retraining programs. To accomplish these goals, patients and their family members work with our Rehabilitation Team which includes:
- Physical Therapists
- Speech Therapist
- Occupational Therapist
- Nurse Practitioners
- Registered Nurses,Licensed Nurses, and Certified Nursing Assistants
- Social Workers and Discharge Planners
If you have Medicare coverage you will need to qualify for skilled care in order for Medicare to pay for short-term rehabilitation.
