At Park Place we have a physical and occupational therapy clinic that we provide office space for in our community for the convenience of our residents. The restorative nursing and rehabilitation teams are made up of registered nurses, licensed practical and vocational nurses, physical and occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, and audiologists. All of these members of the rehabilitation team work together to promote independence, safety, and help each resident attain their highest functional ability.
Our physical therapists are highly trained to prevent, diagnose, and treat movement dysfunction with the use of physical and mechanical methods. These methods often include the use of massage, heat, exercise, and light treatment.
Plans of care may include:
- Mobility training
- Exercise to increase strength, range of motion, and endurance
- Balance facilitation for fall prevention
- Modalities to address pain management
- Facilitating proper body mechanics to prevent future injury
- Promoting safety awareness
Our occupational therapists treat those whose functional abilities have been impaired by illness, injury, or aging. They work with residents to encourage independence and improvement in activities required for daily life.
Areas of treatment within occupational therapy may include functional independence, maintenance of wellness, prevention of further disabilities, or increasing safety awareness.
