We immediately focus on helping you resume a productive life by becoming as independent as possible. Our staff is dedicated to teaching and supporting you and your family every step of the way.
What is a Rehabilitation program?
Under your doctor's direction, rehabilitation specialists come together to provide a treatment program specifically suited to your needs. Physicians who specialize in rehabilitation are called physiatrists. The number of services you receive will depend on your needs.
What will I do in Rehabilitation?
What you do in rehabilitation depends on your specific needs. You may work to improve your independence in many areas. These may include:
- self-care skills such as eating, grooming, bathing, dressing and basic household activities
- mobility skills
- communication skills in speech and language
- cognitive skills such as memory or problem-solving
- monitoring / managing your medical condition, i.e., diabetes, etc.
The Rehabilitation Program encourages and expects family involvement in rehabilitation. In the early phases of care, the rehabilitation team develops a treatment plan with the patient and his/her family. A team conference is scheduled within the first few days of the rehab stay for both the patient and family. This meeting is 10 minutes long and will focus on the patient's goals and discharge plan.
The Genesys Rehab Team teaches the family how to assist with specific therapeutic activities, if needed. In this ongoing process, family members develop skills to help during hospital treatment and after discharge.
