Post-Stroke Care / Neurological Program
The Post-Stroke Care / Neurological Program provides the opportunity to develop the patient's maximum level of independence in the areas o f daily living skills, mobility, language, and swallow skills following a neurological disability such as a stroke.
Our center is dedicated to providing outcome oriented Physical, Occupational and Speech-Language Pathology services. Rehabilitation utilizes an interdisciplinary approach, working with physicians, nurses and other professionals to design individualized Rehabilitation programs for those we serve. Specialized Rehabilitation personnel assist patients in achieving their highest level of physical and cognitive functions.
The Orthopedic Recovery Program helps patients who have sustained an orthopedic injury or disability, such as surgery, fracture, joint replacement, degenerative condition (e.g., arthritis) and other musculoskeletal conditions. Through therapy, patients work toward improving their physical mobility, restoring their levels of fitness and regaining independence in daily living skills.
Our Cardiac Recovery Program is designed to help patients with coronary artery disease and/or those recovering from heart attacks, heart surgery and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI), by minimizing the loss of physical, mental, social and/or occupational function. This can be achieved through exercise and education with an interdisciplinary-team approach to rehabilitation.
Physical Therapy strives to improve strength and mobility so that patients regain independence with various functional tasks such as getting in and out of bed, walking and managing environmental barriers such as stairs.
Occupational Therapy assists in regaining the ability to engage in activities of daily living (ADL’s), such as eating, grooming, bathing/dressing, and performing homemaking tasks independently.
Speech-language Pathology addresses swallowing and communication tasks, rebuilding the functional skills necessary to effectively express basic wants /needs, listen /understand, problem solve, and safely swallow.
Skilled CARE SERVICES
The Dysphagia Program assists the Speech-Language Pathologist in assessing and treating patients with swallowing dysfunctions.
Care and treatment will be overseen by a physician of each patient’s choosing; consulting physicians will assist as needed. A pharmacist also reviews individual medication regimens regularly.
This program works on improving both physical ability (such as joint range of motion and general mobility) and mental function (such as memory improvement, comprehension and problem-solving skills). Whether through group or individual sessions, the patient is encouraged to achieve and maintain their desired highest, individual level of functioning.
