Life Care Centers of America understands the intense desire to recuperate and get back to normal as quickly as possible. Unexpected illness or trauma, or anticipated surgeries can sometimes force individuals to relearn basic functions such as standing, swallowing, gripping or walking. The struggle to regain those lost capabilities while still recovering can be overwhelming. To help patients and residents regain their independence, Life Care offers in-house rehabilitation services at all of its facilities.
The inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation services Life Care's caregivers provide can speed recovery, help return lost skills and bring back strength and mobility.
Physical therapy fosters each patient's independence and enables functional mobility skills following acute or chronic disease processes. This is accomplished through individual evaluations and treatment plans that address deficits through customized interventions.
Occupational therapists work with patients to achieve independence in activities of daily living. Therapists help patients refine their motor skills, hand and upper extremity function, and bladder and bowel control for incontinence.
Speech and language therapy helps patients improve their communication skills in speaking, problem solving, reading, writing and verbal expression, and resolving problems with swallowing.
