Many area physicians refer patients to Mt. Carmel, where the comprehensive rehabilitation team constructs individualized treatment programs for both short term and long term stays. The primary goal in short and long term rehabilitation is to help residents return to their optimum level of strength while achieving the best possible quality of life. Specific care is also taken to help each resident’s family members through this transition.
The programs are reviewed as a team along with the residents and families. Goals and strategies change based on the progress and discharge destination. Families and caregivers are involved from evaluation to home assessment, and trained on specific techniques and equipment that may be beneficial to the resident’s care.
In order to help foster improvement and inspire recovery, Mt. Carmel’s recently renovated rehabilitation area features the latest equipment for Physical, Speech and Occupational Therapy within a bright, spacious setting that includes a large, outdoor patio that is frequently used when the weather permits.
The certified, licensed Physical, Occupational and Speech therapists have the backing of a nationally recognized rehabilitation organization and are committed to helping each person regain the highest level of healing and strength.
