Short Term Rehabilitation

Each person’s needs are different. Often the changes brought on by advancing years, an illness or an accident, call for specialized rehabilitation approaches. Throughout our rehabilitation program, the emphasis is on maximizing people’s abilities and independence, and returning them back home, whenever possible.

Under the direction of your relative’s personal physician, rehabilitation programs are designed and implemented. Specially trained therapists, nurses, and nursing assistants use goal-oriented methods to promote independence. After the formal therapy program has concluded, the restorative assistant, nursing staff continues the work and encouragement.

  • PHYSICAL THERAPISTS work with residents to decrease pain and improve their strength, endurance, balance, and ambulatory skills. This will permit residents to improve their ability to walk, get in and out of bed, as well as up and down stairs.
  • OCCUPATIONAL THERAPISTS teach the skills of independent living, including dressing, personal hygiene, the use of adaptive equipment and homemaking.
  • SPEECH THERAPISTS assist residents in regaining speech and language skills and the ability to swallow. We emphasize one’s abilities and encourage residents to think positively and work toward their goals, one step at a time.

In house staff for Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapies, Medicare certified, Family training and home visits are available upon your request.

Nursing Care

Led by our Director of Nursing, our staff ensures that your personal physician’s orders are carefully followed for nursing care, therapy, nutrition and medication. Our interdisciplinary team develops a care plan to fit each resident’s needs, whether they require acute care following an illness or hospital stay, a special diet, rehabilitation, or just extra attention and assistance.

Our licensed nurses and nursing assistants are thoroughly trained and experienced in meeting the needs of older adults. Just as important, they take time to make sure each resident is comfortable and to get to know residents on a personal basis to better meet their needs.

Dining and Nutrition

In our dining room, our residents enjoy home-style meals served restaurant-style without the work or worry of shopping and cooking. Our staff prepares three meals a day, and twice daily our residents are offered snacks from our mobile hydration cart.

Holidays, luncheons and picnics are celebrated with special meals, prepared with each person’s dietary needs in mind. If your doctor recommends a therapeutic diet, our registered dietitian will made sure your nutritional requirements are met.

Mealtime gives residents a chance to relax and socialize; family and friends are encouraged to join us for any of the meals served.

Social Services

Many residents and their families find it helpful to discuss their needs with our social service staff members, who can help with medically-related social and emotional concerns.

When residents recover from illness of an accident, our staff helps in discharge planning and the transition back to community living. This planning assures the most effective continuing care, either at home or in an alternative setting. Our goal is always, as much as possible, to return each person to the mainstream of life again.

Restorative Nursing

Following a stroke, illness or injury, a person’s independence may be limited. Restorative nursing, in conjunction with our Therapy Department at Stanley Total Living Center, focuses on helping residents do more for themselves to become more independent. We stress that each resident is a whole person, with many unique abilities and special needs. Our philosophy involves early treatment geared toward a goal of returning home or increasing independence in daily living skills and improved self-esteem.

Restorative nursing emphasizes the team approach. Residents, family members, physicians and other members or out interdisciplinary team all work together, striving for the same results.

 

  • Retraining in the activities of daily living may be appropriate:
    • Eating to resume independent dining
    • Dressing to improve pride in appearance
    • Bowel and bladder continence retraining to regain dignity
    • Ambulation to increase strength
    • Grooming to restore good health habits
  • Whirlpool bathtubs to improve circulation and relax muscles

Activities and Events

Our activity director plans a diverse, well-organized and lively schedule of activities each day. We encourage our residents to participate in whatever interests them, whether it be an old favorite pastime or something new and different.

Our residents may take the time to relax with a book… work on a jigsaw puzzle… sing a song… write a story… let a grandchild win at chess… catch up on a favorite daytime drama or participate in their new community by joining the Resident’s Council.

We’re busy every day disproving the notion that all seniors “just sit”. Or course, if a resident would rather relax and take it easy, that’s fine too.

We try to help everyone enjoy their stay to the fullest extent possible.
