Our senior rehabilitation services offer respiratory, occupational, physical, and speech therapies by our full team of licensed practitioners. Our passion for serving seniors in Burton, Ohio and the surrounding areas ensures that our staff and team members are fully committed to helping each resident return to his or her highest level of function possible. We create custom programs that are specifically tailored to each individual, ensuring appropriate functional skills are identified, learned, and reinforced by our Restorative Nursing programs.
Our occupational therapists assist your senior with daily living skills and self-care tasks, such as getting dressed each day and eating. Our occupational therapists also support seniors with memory loss or other cognitive impairments. We assess each individual, and then make recommendations about adaptive equipment, such as wheelchairs, crutches, hearing aids, and dressing sticks, if and when they are necessary.
Our physical therapists diagnose physical issues that restrict movement in your senior loved one, and use exercises and/or other techniques to ease any pain and increase mobility and muscle strength. Our physical therapists also create custom fitness programs designed to help seniors prevent injuries and illnesses and live a more active lifestyle.
Respiratory therapy can help seniors and older adults breathe easier with treatments specially designed to preserve or improve pulmonary or lung function. It is ideal for seniors who are living with ailments and conditions such as congestive heart failure, emphysema, pneumonia, chest trauma, or similar conditions.
Seniors with cognitive difficulties or dementia may benefit from speech therapy treatments for a number of reasons. Speech therapy can preserve critical brain function associated with communication. In addition, it can be effective for older adults and seniors with swallowing disorders, as speech therapists can suggest a diet plan that reduces their risk of choking.
