The importance of therapy services after a hospitalization.
A common misunderstanding amongst some patients and caregivers is that resting or lying in bed is best for recovery after a hospitalization. While rest is part of the equation, engaging and participating in therapy is vital in accelerating the recovery process and returning to a sense of independence.
Therapy services offered in a Skilled Nursing facility may consist of any combination of Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy. They are each unique disciplines trained in addressing a multitude of areas and needs.
Therapy isn’t always about strength building alone it is just as much about improving function and mobility. Therapy can be as simple as building confidence in activities such as getting in and out of bed safely and with the proper mechanics or learning how to conserve energy as you navigate daily activities such as dressing and grooming.
Caregivers, family members, and patients should embrace all of the therapy services offered during the recovery process to ensure a successful and timely transition home.
