Therapy & Rehabilitation
At Tealwood Senior Living, we offer outpatient therapy and short stay rehabilitation. Short stay rehabilitation is designed for those individuals who are recovering from a traumatic experience or scheduled surgery. We provide our patients state-of-the-art rehabilitation services and offer physical, occupational, speech and a wider array of specialized therapies. With a personalized therapy program that is designed to help each individual to succeed, we can accomplish our goal to get our patients back to where they call home as soon as possible.
Outpatient therapy is a form of treatment that is offered to people who do not need to be in a skilled nursing setting on a continued basis. A number of therapies can be offered on an outpatient basis, including occupational, speech, physical, and post-surgical care. Many patients like this type of treatment because it allows them to receive necessary medical care while staying at home. It also allows the patient to live a relatively normal life, simply setting aside time to attend therapy sessions while working, spending time with family and socializing with friends.
Our therapeutic equipment works in conjunction with traditional therapy practices to ensure that people succeed when they leave our community. This state-of-the-art equipment was designed for professional athletes, but then was tweaked to meet the needs of our senior population. Very few communities have invested in this technology, and we have found it to not only help speed the recovery of our patients, but it is a great non-pharmacological, non-invasive form of pain management.
Physical therapy (PT) works to improve and promote optimal physical mobility. Often, treatment consists of exercise to improve strength, mobility training to improve transfer and walking skills and balance training to minimize fall risks. Services can also include modalities to assist with healing and pain relief such as ultrasound, hot/cold packs and electrical stimulation.
Occupational Therapy (OT) works to improve and promote optimal activities of daily living (ADLs). Often, treatment consists of exercises to improve strength, ADL training to improve dressing, feeding and hygiene skills and cognitive training to improve safety awareness. Services can also include obtaining, applying and training on positioning and adaptive equipment.
Speech Therapy (ST) works to improve and promote optimal swallowing and communication skills. Treatment consists of assessing for and making appropriate diet recommendations, exercises to increase oral motor and swallow strength and speech and communication training.
