Hip fractures in the elderly population account for 350,000 hospitalizations each year and 60,000 nursing home admissions. Our caregivers recognize the consequences of osteoporosis and the need for appropriate therapeutic interventions to help with not only strengthening but also flexibility and balance. Those who undergo total knee or hip replacement require a skilled clinician who understands not only the precautions but also the expectations and can design and implement an appropriate treatment program.
One third of all seniors over the age of 65 have at least one fall per year. Our therapy staff is educated in identifying and addressing fall risk factors. We do this by not only training patients in the use of assistive devices but also by improving one’s balance and coordination abilities.
Shortness of breath (dyspnea) is a common feature of many cardiopulmonary conditions. Our therapists recognize the need to address a patient’s functional needs with these limitations in mind. We also routinely instruct patients in various techniques to relieve some of the distress of dyspnea.
Contrary to popular belief, dementia, while common, is not part of the normal aging process, however, some degree of forgetfulness is. Patients with dementia still require rehabilitation services for other conditions and treatment must be adjusted to accommodate their special needs.
After a neurological event (CVA, TIA, hemorrhagic stroke, Parkinson’s disease, etc.) patients require specialized care to have the best chance at restoring their function.
Complex Medical Problems
Often with aging, people develop several medical issues resulting in consequences that affect one’s independence and quality of life. Our rehabilitation, nursing, and social services departments must work together to facilitate safe, effective, and appropriate discharge plans for these patients.
The nursing staff coordinates care with the wound care doctor and physical therapist to provide and modify treatments of pressure sores, diabetic ulcers, post-surgical wounds, and other types of skin issues.
