Our Rehab Team
Our rehab team
composed of physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy works directly with residents to achieve rehab goals to get you back on track. We also offer outpatient therapy for area residents. Rehabilitation can assist residents in regaining their highest level of functioning. Treatments are offered throughout the week at our well equipped facility by licensed professional therapists.
Our newly renovated short-term rehabilitation suites are equipped with flat screen TVs, telephones, daily newspaper services, state-of-the-art therapy equipment and the services of our physical, occupational and speech therapists.
Our team develops comprehensive, individualized care plans to maximize residents physical, social, and emotional independence, safely and quickly.
Our goal for residents is simple: to help individuals to live dignified and optimally independent lives. We tailor each individual's therapy plan to his or her unique needs.
Our Physical Therapists work with residents in training for increased mobility, gait stability, posture and positioning. Exercise programs are implemented to increase muscle function, coordination and endurance. Individualized treatment may also include joint and soft tissue mobilization to increase range of motion, wound care, and pain management. Fall prevention and education is also provided.
Our Occupational Therapists work with residents in education and training in such areas as dressing, bathing, eating, grooming, and other activities of daily living. Adaptive techniques or equipment to overcome physical barriers can be recommended. Strength and coordination exercises are implemented to increase more independence in daily activities.
Our Speech-Language Pathologists address communication and swallowing dysfunction. Treatment plans can include recovery of speech, language, and memory skills. Activities for memory, orientation, and cognitive abilities can be implemented. Oral muscle strength and functioning required for speaking and swallowing as well as appropriate/safe diet recommendations can be designed for individual needs.
Our licensed therapists provide the same quality level of care on an outpatient setting for individuals who have transitioned to home but still need ongoing therapeutic care in our outpatient therapy gym.
Our comprehensive outpatient program includes physical, occupational and speech therapy as well as our specialized heart failure recovery plan following such medical conditions including heart attack, stroke, fall or fracture, joint replacement and surgery.
These services are available to those in the community who need therapy without a short-term nursing home stay. These services are available three to five days a week and are covered by Medicare and most insurance plans.
If you or a loved one have been recently hospitalized and feel you may benefit from therapy services, Exceptional Living Center of Brazil is here for you.
