Rehabilitation

A Helping Hand

Whether your’re recovering from surgery, an injury or a stroke, Crowne Health Care can help restore function and confidence to your daily routine. Our highly skilled and dedicated team of therapists will also work with you to regain your your independence and peace of mind. Your recovery is our top priority, and we’re with you every step of the way.

For over twenty years, Restore Therapy has partnered with our skilled nursing staff to provide rehabilitative services to our residents. Whether you need rehabilitation to “bridge the gap” between a hospital stay and returning home or need comprehensive therapy as a long-term resident, our professional rehabilitation department is here to strengthen and increase your mobility. Sometimes, a patient is too ill for home care but no longer needs to remain in the hospital or in a surgical bed. When that is the case, physicians order short-term rehabilitation or transitional care in a skilled nursing facility.

Your rehabilitation team, guided by your physician, will decide which of the following therapies would be beneficial to you:

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy focuses on problems with loss of movement, strength, motion, balance, and skin breakdown to accelerate recovery, prevent impairments, and minimize wounds and contractures. Our therapists work aggressively on healing advanced state decubitus ulcers (bed sores) utilizing state-of-the-art wound care protocols and pressure relief techniques to restore skin integrity.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy helps residents relearn activities of daily living such as grooming, bathing, dressing and feeding to restore their highest level of independence.

Speech Therapy

Speech therapy helps increase the resident’s ability to express desires as well as the restoration of swallowing skills following a stoke or due to neurological or muscular diseases.

If you qualify for short-term therapy, Medicare may cover 100 percent of your first 20 days in our skilled nursing facility. We also accept private pay residents, some HMOs, most private insurance policies, and supplemental or long-term care insurance.

Medical conditions that frequently require transitional care may include:

  • Stroke
  • Post operative surgery
  • Tube feeding
  • Arthritis
  • Wound care
  • Pain management
  • Total parenteral nutrition
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Pulmonary disease
  • Tracheostomy care
  • Respite care

Our rehabilitation department is integral in enabling our residents and short-term patients to recuperate faster and achieve a level of maximum function.

Our team of physical, occupational, and speech therapists address diverse conditions including:

  • Neurological conditions such as strokes, Multiple Sclerosis and Parkinson’s Disease
  • Orthopedic injuries, joint replacements and musculoskeletal problems
  • Cancer-related conditions
  • Amputations
  • Trauma resulting from accident or illness
  • Functional decline secondary to other illnesses

Because personal support is an important component of recovery, the involvement of family and friends is encouraged in the rehabilitation process. Our goal is to assist each resident in obtaining the highest level of function and capacity for life.
