Post Acute refers to the level of care provided after an injury or hospitalization. Beechwood is able to provide a number of specialized services to help you recover and safely return home. We are able to provide medical and rehab support from basic joint replacements to complex medical situations which are more appropriate to care for at Beechwood rather than home.
Short term rehabilitation helps you recover from a medical procedure or illness typically after a hospital stay. Our services will ensure you are able to return home safely to prevent re-injury. Short term rehabilitation length varies and can last a few days to weeks depending on the complexity of care required.
OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY Therapists work closely with patients to develop creative solutions, which enable them to continue on with their lives. This is done by:• Using adaptive devices • Learning new ways to carry out everyday tasks • Addressing psychological, social and environmental functioning • Developing methods and tools using good ergonomics: stress reduction exercises and ways to manage pain enabling the patient to go back to work • Reaching the ultimate goal: getting on with life
SPEECH THERAPY The speech therapy program is designed to create an individualized treatment plan with long term and short term goals. The therapist will:• Evaluate communication, cognition and swallowing issues • Develop collaborative strategies with the patient, family and staff to compensate for memory loss • Create exercises to improve the strength of speech and swallowing muscles • Teach the patient and family techniques to improve communication despite limited verbal expression
