At independent and assisted living communities like Bermuda Village, lots of different needs are catered to. Whether you’re just looking for a supportive environment to live in or are in need of around-the-clock care, we can help. Rehabilitative care is varied to suit the needs of the patients, with specific therapy provided in order to help you recover. Here are a few different types of rehabilitative care that may be provided.
This kind of therapy focuses on the bones, joints, and muscles. Residents may require short-term orthopedic rehab after a surgery or injury to any of these areas. It is also helpful in treating conditions like arthritis and carpal tunnel syndrome, as well as alleviating the symptoms of chronic joint pain.
Staying independent is a priority for a lot of seniors, and occupational therapy can help them to achieve this. It is used after an illness, injury, surgery, or disability to help the patient regain control and the ability to perform everyday tasks.
Physical therapy is used in a number of situations to generally improve the physical state of a patient or resident. It helps to improve strength and mobility, reduce pain, and overall improve quality of life.
Speech and language therapy can be especially important after suffering a stroke, as speech can become difficult. Our ability to communicate is extremely important at all stages of our lives, so this therapy helps to restore these skills and abilities.
Neurological rehabilitation is also useful following a stroke, along with various other conditions that affect the brain and spinal cord. It can help patients with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, and more. This rehab helps to improve cognitive and motor function in these patients.
After suffering a heart attack or any other condition that weakens the heart, cardiac rehabilitation is used to strengthen the heart muscle and improve its overall function. This improves the physical ability of patients and also helps to reduce the risk of further attacks.
Here at Bermuda Village, we provided top class rehabilitative care. Patients and residents in need of rehabilitation will benefit from on-site geriatricians, meals prepared daily with the option of room delivery, around the clock nursing care, and one-on-one physical, occupational, and speech therapy available.
