Rehabilitation is the process of reshaping lives and restoring lost abilities after surgery, illness or injury. Comprehensive rehabilitation treats the whole person physically, emotionally, and socially with the goal of returning the individual to his or her optimum level of function. Successful rehabilitation is the threshold to the highest quality of life possible for that person.
At Heritage Convalescent Center, our Interdisciplinary Team (IDT) consisting of our Physician, Therapists, Nursing professionals and Social Services provides focused, individualized, goal-oriented treatment. Our Homeward Bound Medical Specialty Unit located within the facility serves individuals who need focused rehabilitative and skilled nursing services before returning to the community. Heritage Convalescent Center provides private rooms, private telephones, large screen color, cable television, daily newspapers and electric beds for the comfort of our residents.
With an emphasis on rehabilitation, the Heritage Convalescent Center staff provides innovative treatment approaches to assist residents in returning to a normal and viable lifestyle. Our rehabilitation professionals include Occupational Therapists, Certified Occupational Therapist Assistants, Physical Therapists, Physical Therapist Assistants, Speech Language Pathologists and Certified Music Therapists. All of our therapists are graduates of accredited programs, have national credentials, and are licensed with the state.
Once the Interdisciplinary Team has identified the resident’s strengths and limitations through careful assessment, an individualized treatment plan is implemented. These clinical programs may address the resident’s mobility, performance of activities of daily living, communication skills, and swallowing function. The resident and his or her family are kept informed of progress through formal and informal meeting with members of The IDT.
