Our philosophy is that all persons are entitled to the best that medical science has contributed to help each individual continue his/her life at the maximum of his/her abilities; that each person admitted has available to him/her physical, mental, social, restorative, and spiritual facilities which can assist in a more speedy recovery and enrich life. This care center will observe Title 6 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which states: "No person in the United States shall, on the grounds of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied benefit of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.
Physical therapy focuses on movement and functional mobility. Therapists may use heat, ultrasound, and other modalities or a hands-on approach to restore motion and decrease pain. Improvements in strength, flexibility, and endurance will have outcomes in safe mobility and walking skills. Design of a maintenance program will help residents remain active and at their highest potential.
Occupational therapy uses goal-directed activity to improve declining function or adapt to the social and physical environment to allow the highest level of independence. Services may include education and retraining in daily living skills such as bathing, dressing, and eating; increase strength and endurance to maintain self-sufficiency; assistive equipment or daily living adaptation for sensory loss such as impaired vision or hearing, or therapeutic activities for memory, orientation, and cognitive integration. Ongoing programs are designed for family and caregivers to reinforce the highest level of function possible and promote the self-satisfaction of completing these tasks for oneself.
Restorative therapy programming is carried out five days/week by certified nursing assistants under the guidance of qualified therapists. Individualized programs have goals to restore or maintain function, reduce pain, and reinforce living skills.
Telemedicine allows health care professionals to evaluate, diagnose, and treat patients at a distance using telecommunications technology. Mental Health and Altru Services, such as cardiology, GI, wound, infectious disease, nephrology, neurology, oncology, orthopedics, and others are offered.
