How Short-Term Rehabilitation Works at Bristol Glen
The day a new resident arrives at UMC at Bristol Glen, our on-site professionals will perform a complete evaluation on their current status. After the initial evaluation, we begin to develop the rehab plan, which includes deciding on different forms of therapy, medical treatments, and dietary requirements. Once the resident starts receiving treatment along with other necessary services they can focus on one thing – to fully heal as soon as possible.
More About Rehabilitative Services Offered at Bristol Glen
Occupational therapy at Bristol Glen focuses on helping older adults perform daily tasks of living, such as dressing, bathing, and moving from point A to point B. Any illness, condition or injury that requires a hospital stay that lasts more than one night can have negative side effects on your body, especially if you are required to rest in bed for days at a time. A stay at our full-service community, along with an appropriate exercise program developed by an on-site occupational therapist, will help you heal and recover your former capabilities more effectively.
Especially effective after illness or injury, physical therapy is used to speed up the healing process and prevent further issues. After a thorough evaluation, our PTs create a recovery plan with the goal to make daily tasks easier, ease pain and improve movement. Our program focuses on maintaining your highest capability level by overall strengthening, conditioning, and avoiding any potential risks.
By performing chest exams, managing breathing equipment, and evaluating blood oxygen levels, our respiratory therapists create recovery plans to treat issues related to the lungs. Respiratory treatment options may include the following: oxygen therapy, self-care instructions, and different control methods for breathing.
Following a comprehensive evaluation, our speech pathologists can effectively treat disorders linked to speech, language, social communication, cognitive-communication, and swallowing. This form of therapy comes highly recommended for older adults who have significant trouble with voice, tone, producing sounds or communicating thoughts appropriately.
