Our Rehabilitative Therapist team consists of a Speech Pathologist, Physical Therapist, and an Occupational Therapist as well as other trained and certified assistants.
The goal of the Rehabilitative team is to return each patient to his/her highest level of function. Individual programs are tailored to include goals that will ensure appropriate functional skills can be identified, learned, safely implemented and reinforced.
When a person is discharged for formal skilled therapy by a licensed therapist they are referred to our “Restorative Care Program”
Specialty Programming Includes:
Restorative care refers to the nursing interventions that promote a resident’s ability to adapt and adjust to living as independently and safely as possible. This concept actively focuses on achieving and maintaining optimal physical, mental, and psychosocial functioning. Generally, restorative programs are initiated when a resident is discharged from the formalized physical, occupational or speech therapy. A resident may also begin a restorative program when he/she is admitted with restorative needs, but is not a candidate for skilled therapy services.
Restorative programs include activities such as walking, transferring, dressing, grooming, eating, swallowing, exercising and communication to improve or maintain function in physical abilities, activities of daily living and prevent further impairment.
Crawford County Care Center has Two Levels of Restorative Care
Restorative Care is provided by general nursing staff; these programs are less formal and are usually performed during routine nursing care.
The staff is well trained in restorative techniques that promote resident involvement in the activity. Programs are supervised by a licensed nurse, specializing in restorative care.
