Your Rehab Team

Many Disciplines — One Goal

Once the patient is on the road to recovery, the rehab therapy team rolls into action. The team consists of physical therapists (PT), physical therapy assistants (PTA), occupational therapists (OT), certified occupational therapy assistants (COTA), a speech and language pathologist (SLP), and a rehab aide/technician, who work together based on the individual needs of each patient.

The Physical Therapist assesses and treats impairments in strength and function that occur as a result of injury, disease, age-related degeneration, or environmental factors. Physical therapy treatments are performed by the physical therapist, or a physical therapy assistant who treats under the direction of the supervising physical therapist.

The Occupational Therapist assesses the impact that a decline in function has in the patients’ ability to participate in their life by performing everyday tasks such as dressing and bathing, or being able to return to work or engage in previous hobbies. Occupational therapy treatments are performed by the OT (or a COTA working under the direction of the supervising OT).

The Speech Therapist and/or Language Pathologist assesses language, cognition, and swallowing dysfunction.  A Speech Therapist’s main goal is helping resident with swallowing difficulties.  They will work with residents that may have modified diets to help them get back to eating the types of foods they love.

These three disciplines work together along with nursing, social services, activities, the business office, families, caregivers, and local communities to assess functional potential, and collaborate on the unique goals for every patient. Family members are essential contributors to this interdisciplinary rehab team, as they provide the background and detail of their loved one’s life to incorporate into our plan of care.

While in our care, please know that your loved one will be well taken care of. Because all of our rehab therapists are in-house (rather than outside contractors), our relationships with our residents are superior. Our therapists and nurses work together as a team, and due to the continuity of their care, a strong trust is built with our residents. There is comfort in knowing that the same smiling face will be there to help them through their rehab each day.

On-Site Decision Makers

We Don’t Wait To Make Important Decisions

In order to provide the best care possible, our caregivers must be empowered to make decisions, because in many cases, every second counts. So rather than waiting for a decision from higher-ups who might not understand the crucial details of any given situation, we leave the decisions to those who are closest and know best: the caregivers, doctors, and nurses who work with our patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

It’s important to us that our patients, as well as their family members, feel loved, informed and comfortable during their stay at our facility. Quality of life is just as important as quality of care in a skilled nursing facility – and we work hard to make sure that every patient is as happy and comfortable as possible. Every staff member on the floor and in the office knows each patient by name. They make eye contact as they greet them, and once a request is met, they ask if there is anything else they may need. If there is a request, the team member is then empowered to carry it through. We’ve found that with this kind of team member empowerment, patients have consistently shown greater motivation to reach their goals.
