Golden Acres Living and Rehabilitation

Our approach to therapy is truly state-of-the-art, and we provide the finest in therapists, equipment and services. Our therapy room is large and clean, well-lit and welcoming. We’ll design a therapy program that is tailored to get you up, around, and functioning at the highest level possible. It’s our goal to get you back in the swing of things, and we employ a variety of high-tech and (good old-fashioned) hands-on therapeutic approaches that we believe will work wonders for you!

In-House Therapy

Our Vision — Your Success

Each patient has unique and special needs, so our in-house therapy program is completely customizable to meet them. This is a collaborative effort among our team members, who work with your physician to create a unique vision and treatment plan for you. We can even provide specialized equipment to aid in your treatment.

We have a full-time in-house therapy team – not outside contractors or agencies – so our patients get to know their therapists, and vice-versa. Having the same therapy team working with you every day is a big plus, and we always seek to achieve just the right “match” between patient and therapist, for optimal results and comfort.

The therapy staff is part of the “bricks and mortar” of Golden Acres Living and Rehabilitation, and our therapists take pride in the performance of the therapy department as well as the entire facility.  Our therapists provide ongoing education and training to other disciplines, to ensure the continuity of care between therapy and nursing. This is part of our holistic approach to caregiving, as the several disciplines in the facility work together with one goal in mind: your comfort and health.

State-of-the-Art

A Passion for the Art of Caring

Our therapy team is passionate about bringing the latest techniques and programs to our patients. Through continuing education, our physical and occupational therapists apply the latest research to improve balance and reduce fall-risk. They also utilize therapeutic modalities combined with a comprehensive therapy program for strengthening, balance training, pain reduction, wound-healing, urinary incontinence, and increasing range of motion.

In addition, we have therapists certified in specialty areas of practice such as:
• Wound Care
• Neurological Conditions
• Electrical Stimulation For Swallowing Dysfunction
• Lymphedema
• Pulmonary Programs
• Speech-language Therapy

At the heart of our therapy programs is a deep appreciation for, and understanding of, the special needs of our more mature patients. This goes beyond the science and research in order to tap into the art of caring for these unique needs.

Integrated Cognitive Program

Our integrated cognitive program combines a standardized functional cognitive assessment with our patients’ “life footprint” to help us develop a comprehensive understanding of each individual under our care. After assessing the patient’s functional cognitive level, we overlay this assessment with a comprehensive “background inventory” that includes relevant details of the patient’s daily life. By matching these two data sets in a meaningful way, we can better tailor individualized therapy programs to the patient’s unique needs. We can also reduce the stress and anxiety of being in a new place for either short-term rehabilitation or a permanent residence. The Integrated Cognitive Program is also instrumental in setting up the best care for our patients with Alzheimer’s Disease.

Rehab to Return Home

Anticipating Your Every Need

We work with each patient, their family and their healthcare provider to determine the best care and treatment plan. When the goal is to return home, we explore every detail about our patient’s prior living arrangements. Family members are encouraged to participate in the care so that they can help their loved one prepare for discharge. We frequently perform a “home assessment,” which we can use to develop a custom-designed rehab program that prepares our patients for any particular challenges they might experience once they get home.

When the plan is to stay in our facility once the therapy program is complete, we make sure that we work side-by-side with our nursing staff so that our patients can continue to function at their highest possible level to preserve their independence and participation. We continue to do ongoing screenings after completion of their program to make sure that our patients are maintaining their abilities at the best possible level.
