Physical Therapy

Independent Mobility & Injury Prevention

Injury and illness can take a toll on the body’s strength and mobility. Physical therapy is designed to relieve pain and improve mobility, balance, transfers, and range of motion. Our physical therapists help residents reach their highest level of independent mobility and learn how to prevent injury. They instruct patients in skilled techniques to improve the ability to walk, climb stairs, and increase physical stamina. They also assess the need for specialized equipment that may improve self-reliance and safety.

Of course, there is no one-size-fits-all technique, which is why our physical therapists consider each resident’s medications, conditions, and desired outcomes to develop the most suitable, individualized therapy plan.

Physical therapy outcomes may include:

  • Increased Strength and Mobility
  • Increased Motor Control
  • Improved Coordination and Balance
  • Improved Overall Range of Motion
  • Improved Endurance

Reduce Fall Risk

Reducing fall risk is a primary concern for our residents. Muscle weakness, limited mobility, and foot pain all increase risk for falls, and physical therapy can target each of these issues. Physical therapists focus on improving balance, strengthening muscles in the lower extremities, and reducing pain to prevent falls.

Build Strength

Building muscle strength can help reduce fall risk and is also beneficial in granting residents more independence. Physical therapists guide residents through safe and effective exercises to achieve their desired outcomes, such as easily lifting groceries, holding children, and moving around living spaces.

Target Pain

Chronic pain can lead to reduced mobility, depression, and sleep problems. Physical therapists work with you to restore movement and help your body heal by targeting the issues behind pain, which is critical for improving quality of life. Physical therapists also educate residents on ways to minimize pain in the future.

Occupational Therapy

Daily Living and Safety Awareness

Occupational therapists are experts in the performance, physical, mental, and psychosocial aspects of illness and injury. Through occupational therapy, residents can develop function, as well as an increased sense of competency and personal happiness. Occupational therapists work to help residents improve their command over activities of daily living, equipping them with the necessary skills for proper self-care, such as dressing, personal hygiene, and cooking. Each resident’s occupational therapy services depend entirely upon his or her unique circumstances and goals. Occupational therapists tailor their approach to each person:

For short-term or post-acute residents, occupational therapy helps prepare to return home. An occupational therapist might address activities of daily living and provide education on energy conservation and task simplification. An occupational therapist may also evaluate the resident’s home for safety after discharge and then recommend and teach the person to use adaptive equipment, such as a shower chair or a walker, how to care for themselves safely, and how to pursue regular activities—like cooking or driving—as they continue recovering.

For long-term residents, and those with memory or cognitive disorders, occupational therapists focus on adapting activities to keep the resident as functional and independent as possible, providing them with dignity and enhancing their quality of life. Occupational therapists might provide equipment to assist with activities, modify the resident’s environment to maximize independence, and facilitate the resident’s participation in the center’s activities.

Functional outcomes may include:

  • Dressing, Bathing, & Grooming
  • Toileting
  • Homemaking
  • Cooking & Eating
  • Prevention of Further Disability
  • Adaptive Equipment
  • Increased Safety Awareness

Speech and Language Pathology

Language, Swallowing, and Cognitive Disorders

Speech and Language Pathologists assist residents in achieving improved quality of life through assessment of language, swallowing, and/or cognitive disorders. Speech Language Pathologists collaborate with physical therapists, occupational therapists, nursing, and family members regarding ways to improve a resident’s cognition, communication, and swallowing function. Each resident is different, and requires different levels of care and focus in various areas.

Speech Language Pathologists can teach individuals how to improve swallowing by working and strengthening their muscles thereby reducing the chances of choking or inhaling food or liquid.

For residents with dementia, Alzheimer’s, stroke patients, as well as other diagnoses that can affect memory and cognition, speech language pathology evaluates the resident’s condition so that caregivers and families can engage in quality communication with these residents. Techniques include simplifying instructions, offering visual aids, developing memory books, and a host of other recommendations. We work to foster continued meaningful communication with our loved ones.

Outcomes may include:

  • Improved Speech & Voice Clarity
  • Increased Comprehension & Verbal Expression
  • Improved Chewing and Swallowing
  • Maximized Cognitive Language Skills
    (Memory, Problem Solving, and Abstract Reasoning)
