After months of construction and renovation the new and improved Generations at Neighbors is ready for occupancy. One of the many highlights of our expansion project is our state-of-the-art therapy gym.
The goal with our therapy gym is to get our patients back to living their independent lifestyle at home. Our therapy program offers one on one therapy up to 7 days a week and ensures that our patients can transition safely home. Our rehabilitation gym is equipped with a bedroom; bathroom, kitchen and grocery area all designed to evaluate capability and train on the most common activities of daily living. There is a private therapy space that ensures quiet and privacy while one participates in speech therapy. Our therapy gym is open and airy with great natural lighting to give patients a boost of natural vitamin D and has a private courtyard, where, when the weather permits, patients can practice their therapy outside.
Our physical therapists help patients reduce pain and improve or restore mobility through preventing or managing their condition so that they will achieve long-term health benefits. They examine each individual and develop a plan, using treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain, and restore function. The goals may focus on improving gait, balance, stair climbing, how to safely transfer from a chair, toilet or bed, and safely use adaptive equipment such as a walker, crutches or wheelchair.
Our Occupational therapy focuses on activities of daily living, independence and living life to its fullest. Our occupational therapists want to ensure that our residents are as independent as possible with carrying out the simple routines of daily life such as dressing and bathing to shopping for groceries and cooking a meal. They will teach you the skills you need to do everyday tasks at home while gaining strength and coordination while preserving energy.
Our private speech and language suites ensures quiet and privacy as our therapists evaluate and treat concerns with swallowing, speaking, and use vocal exercises to help patients communicate effectively. All designed again to return our residents to the highest level of function and independence.
