What can Rehab do?

It’s one of the best ways to restore health and stay healthy. Rehab includes PT (physical therapy), OT (occupational therapy) and ST (speech therapy). But you may not know these and other forms of Rehab can:

  • Improve balance
  • Increase levels of safety
  • Reduce pain in targeted areas
  • Increase levels of activity and participation
  • Significantly reduce risks of falls and injuries
  • Provide residents with self-management skills and education
  • Significantly increase range of motion in targeted areas
  • Improve residents’ perceptions of their quality of life (their outlook)
  • Improve functional endurance for performing ADLs (activities of daily living)

Rehabilitation FAQs

Based on medical certification by a physician, treatment plans are individualized to address each rehabilitation need and specific condition. After admission, the therapy team meets to review the treatment plan and recommend an appropriate service schedule. A healthy, postoperative 64-year-old woman might require an hour each of physical and occupational therapy, 5 times per week for 3 weeks. A less-healthy 88-year-old man recovering from the same surgery might recover much more slowly, and a lighter, longer schedule may be more appropriate. The therapy team works quite closely with the single most important team member: the resident.

Each team starts with the resident and includes a doctor, nurse, dietitian, social worker, family members (as the resident is able and willing to approve), plus the therapists who’ll direct and provide care, partner with the resident and work with family members.

Insurance options for long-term and short-term care can be confusing. It’s important to review your Rehab plan carefully to determine what your private insurance, Medicare or Medicaid will cover, and what portion you’ll be billed for. If you’re having trouble navigating your plan and coverages, Cornerstone case managers are here to help.
