Physical. Occupational. Speech Pathology.
Whether your loved one is recovering from surgery, injury, or illness they will need a custom-tailored rehab plan designed specifically for them. We offer a wide range of therapy modalities which allow us to effectively and efficiently help residents return home safely. Our goal is always to relieve pain, restore function, improve mobility, and prevent or limit physical and cognitive disabilities. Education and prevention is also a big part of our programs.
Our physical therapy program is led by state-licensed physical therapists. Physical therapy sessions are designed to restore strength, range of motion, balance, coordination, respiration, and motor functions. Each resident receives an individualized care plan that documents their progress and allows our physical therapists to accurately assess their ability to become independent and reintegrate into the community successfully. Physical therapy can be valuable for individuals recovering from:
- Fractured hips and other bones
- Joint pain
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- And many other conditions
Education is a big part of physical therapy. We teach residents to use adaptive devices and teach them exercises they can continue at home. Teaching safety and awareness strategies to prevent future injuries is a critical component of our PT program.
Occupational therapists help residents achieve function, meaning, and satisfaction in aspects of everyday life. Our occupational therapy program helps residents achieve an understanding of the importance of participation in life’s events for their overall well-being. Our residents learn how to successfully navigate everyday challenges like getting dressed, bathing, feeding, home management, and participating in social activities.
Occupational therapy takes a holistic approach to creating a plan by assessing residents’:
- Physical condition
- Cognitive condition
- Psychosocial condition
- Sensory condition
After a profile is created, our occupational therapists create individualized care plans based around the resident’s specific conditions and limitations. They develop strategies to maintain or improve their safety and long term wellbeing. A big part of the program is assisting residents with life transitions and preparing them for change.
Spring Meadows speech therapists work with our medical staff to develop individualized care plans customized to each resident’s unique needs. Residents may need speech pathology as a result of:
- Brain injury
- Progressive diseases
Speech therapists duties include assisting with speech articulation and fluency. If cognitive-communication impairment is present therapists treat attention and memory deficits, abstract reasoning, and problem-solving deficits.
Restorative Nursing Program
Helping residents live as independently as possible with positive psychological and physical well being is the foundation of our restorative nursing program. A certified restorative nursing assistant helps residents maintain current and gained functionality to prevent future decline. Restorative nursing focuses on getting residents to perform at their highest level possible and maintain it for as long as possible.
