Coordination of Rehabilitation
Illinois Presbyterian Home Communities partners with several Springfield home health care providers to help our residents receive the rehabilitation services needed to live more active and independent lives. From the comfort of your room or suite at Fair Hills Residence, a therapist will evaluate your rehabilitation needs and develop individualize therapeutic treatment plans under the direction of your physician, to improve your health, safety, and well-being.
In assisted living facilities, Medicare and insurance companies often approve payment for rehabilitation services when a senior is facing a decline in their level of safety or independence when experiencing an illness or injury.
In order to maximize independence, a Physical Therapist may provide mobility training, safe transfer techniques, fall prevention and exercise programs to restore muscle functioning and increase your range of motion.
Occupational Therapists may work individually with residents to provide education and training to maximize functioning in activities of daily living such as dressing, bathing, eating and grooming. Speech therapists may provide treatments for recovering speech and swallowing skills.
The expertise of these rehabilitation professionals, with the support of the Fair Hills nursing staff, strive to assist you to remain independent and successfully age in place so you do not have to leave the comforts of your assisted living home.
