Rehabilitation

Orthopedic Unit

Rosewood Post-Acute Rehab is pleased to introduce our new Orthopedic Unit. We listened to the needs of our community and the requests of the local hospitals to expand our rehabilitation services. We have dedicated a wing of our facility to handle the sophisticated needs of patients after total hip, knee, or shoulder replacement and/or repairs to injured joints. This area of the facility serves the special needs associated with these types of procedures. All rooms are two-bed rooms with patients only coming in for short-term rehabilitation services.

Our rehabilitation team assists both our patients and their families during this transitional period from surgery until they are discharged back home or to a lower level of care. We provide essential information to help make a successful transition. We are open to your concerns and feedback. We will work with our discharge planner to make all the arrangements when you have completed your first phase of recovery. For questions, please feel free to ask your therapist or our Director of Rehabilitation. In our unwavering commitment to continuous improvement and the provision of world-class patient care, we welcome and appreciate your feedback to assist us with addressing any of your questions or concerns.

Our experienced rehabilitation team is committed to the quality of care for our residents. Patients are empowered through individualized programs to reach goals of increased independence. Patient families are also encouraged to participate in therapy sessions.

We seek to maximize the quality of life for all of our residents. . Our amenities are on the leading edge and may include:

  • Flat panel TV in the Family Room with cable TV also used for Wii-Hab Therapy

Physical Therapy

Physical therapy focuses on identification and rehabilitation of individuals with physical impairment and pain, as well as future injury prevention. Following evaluation, the physical therapist develops an individualized treatment program.

Areas of treatment focus may include:

  • Increasing strength and mobility in the body and lower extremities
  • Increasing motor control for a patient who has suffered a stroke
  • Improving coordination, balance, and the ability to walk following orthopedic surgery
  • Improving overall strength conditioning, range of motion and endurance following hip or knee replacements
  • Teaching pain management
  • Teaching proper body mechanics to prevent injury
  • Promoting safety awareness for the well-being of the resident

Occupational Therapy

Our occupational therapists use task directed activities in the treatment of our patients whose functional abilities and independence with activities of daily living have been impaired by illness, injury, or normal aging. Occupational therapy assists our patients in adapting to their social and physical environment by mastering tasks essential for daily living. Our occupational therapists may work with patients who have debilitating arthritic conditions or those with difficulty bathing, dressing, and other activities of daily living. They assist our patients with impaired vision and/or hearing to function well in their environment.

Areas of treatment may include:

  • Functional independence- eating bathing, toileting, homemaking, cooking
  • Maintenance of wellness- dressing, grooming
  • Prevention of further disability – home assessments and modifications, adaptive equipment
  • Increasing safety awareness – energy conservation techniques, body mechanics

Speech Therapy

Our speech therapists provide a myriad of services including assessment, education, and treatment for language, voice, articulation, and fluency disorders. Our treatment programs are directed towards improving communication skills and safe swallowing. We assist in rehabilitating patients who struggle with comprehension, memory, processing, and expression abilities. We also instruct the patient or the caregiver in the techniques ranging from head positioning to promoting safe swallowing at a slower rate to clearer speech. We also teach patients how to compensate if they cannot be rehabilitated to their prior level of performance.

Speech therapists work to restore the following abilities:

  • Speech and voice clarity
  • Comprehension and verbal expression
  • Chewing and swallowing ability
  • Cognitive language skills, like memory, problem-solving, and abstract reasoning
  • Patient and family/caregiver education and training for managing ongoing difficulties with communication, cognition, and
    swallowing.
