Rehab teams start with the resident and include a doctor, nurse, dietitian, social worker, family members (as the resident is able and willing to approve), plus the therapists who will direct and provide care, partner with the resident and work with the family members.
Occupational and physical therapy work to restore strength and mobility, but occupational therapy focuses more on helping adapt to the resident’s social and physical environment. This typically includes training or retraining the resident on how to dress, bathe, eat and groom; memory, orientation and cognitive integration; and on maintaining normal joint movement to reduce the effects of arthritis or other conditions.
After accident, injury or surgery, 2 major concerns that sometimes emerge are eating challenges and swallowing dysfunction, the former caused or exacerbated by poor teeth or dentures, the latter by post-intubation trauma. Our skilled speech and language pathologists create treatment plans that address each resident’s specific abilities, provide precise exercises and other tactics and when appropriate, offer diet recommendations in support of the treatment plan medical recommendations. A third concern – constrained vocalizing – may follow events such as strokes or accidents. In that case, the speech therapist will develop strategies for relearning vocalization.
Individualized to address specific conditions and rehabilitation needs and based on medical certification by a physician, every treatment plan is unique. The therapy team reviews each treatment plan and recommends an appropriate service schedule. For some it’s daily for a few weeks. Others require less frequent sessions and greater intervals between treatments. The key is this: The therapy team works closely with the single most important team member – the person in their care – to create and execute a plan that’s just right.
