Our Physical Therapists focus on our residents regaining strength and balance, achieving optimal mobility skills, improving range of motion, relieving pain and promoting wound care management. They instruct residents in techniques to improve their ability to walk, climb stairs, and increase physical stamina. Professionals assess the need for equipment, such as specialized braces or mobility devices that may be required to improve self-reliance and safety, and assist with ambulation, prevention, and contractures.
Our Occupational Therapists maximize our resident's independence in performing activities of daily living and self-care skills such as feeding, dressing, bathing, and grooming. They help restore prior abilities lost through illness or injury such as brain, spinal cord, post fractures, and other problems. They focus on improving hand and arm function and upper body strength. Our occupational therapists employ various levels of activity, safety training, and other compensatory techniques. They are specialists in recommending adaptive equipment and making recommendations to help our residents adjust safely in their own environment. This enables our residents to complete their ADLs at their highest functioning level.
