Restore Therapy Services

 

RESTORE is our comprehensive therapy program. In addition to the variety of medical diagnoses and conditions traditionally treated by our experienced therapy staff, we have chosen to excel in several core clinical areas of Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy.

The options today of the advanced professional degree of Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) and the Geriatric Specialization Certification have resulted in both the validation and best practice approaches to many of the medical problems treated by our therapists.


We are excited to offer clinical treatment protocols, tests and measurements and patient education applied in our clinical settings. Our primary goal is to RESTORE your health and prepare you to regain more independence and return to your home.

Speech Therapy: Parkinson's Disease

 Speech and Physical Therapy team up to improve the speaking and mobility function of Parkinson’s disease patients.

 

Using a standardized treatment protocol, these two different therapy disciplines, Speech and Physical Therapy, provide exercises to improve several different functions. Soft voice, mumbled speech and monotone speech are the target effects of speech therapy. Flexibility, strength and posture, balance and coordination are the targeted goals of physical therapy. Combining these distinct approaches stimulates and improves motor learning and changes brain function.

 

The outcomes are the patient’s avoidance of inactivity and their attention to energetic movement throughout many planned daily activities. The patient advances to exhibit greater effort, progressive movement, continuous/frequent activity and persistent motivation.

Speech Therapy: Dysphagia (Swallowing Disorders)

Speech Therapy is often helpful in the condition referred to as dysphagia. The patient experiences difficulty swallowing and may also have pain while swallowing. Sometimes the individual may be completely unable to swallow or may have trouble swallowing liquids, foods or saliva. Eating is difficult in these circumstances. Often, it can be difficult to take in enough calories and fluids to nourish the body and weight loss is a common observation.

 

Often occurring in the Senior population, swallowing problems often happen because of other conditions, including:

  • Nervous system disorders, such as Parkinson’s disease and cerebral palsy
  • Problems with the esophagus, including gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Stroke
  • Head or spinal cord injury
  • Cancer of the head, neck or esophagus

 

Swallowing treatment with a Speech-language pathologist can help. Speech Therapy may include:

  • Muscle exercises with or without electrical stimulation
  • Compensatory strategies
  • Head postures (e.g., chin tucks or turning the head to one side)
  • Designing a safe diet
  • Safe swallow techniques

If you desire to improve your swallowing function, please contact us using the information below.

Occupational Therapy: Community Re-Entry

The Community Re-Entry Program is an occupational therapy component of our RESTORE therapy program. The Community Re-Entry Program is designed to help you plan, schedule and accomplish your list of “to dos” with success and self-confidence.

 

By sharing your concerns and needs with an occupational therapist prior to returning to your home, your transition to responsible self-care is on track. Your therapist will plan and travel with you to your community visits– coaching and encouraging the successful completion of each task. If your mobility is a bit more complex than before, you will learn and practice transportation and safety tips with your new walker or cane under careful supervision.

 

The Community Re-Entry Program will give you the strength and confidence to live more independently.

 

As you progress with independence in performing living skills, there are many reasons to consider activities you participate in community. For example, sending and receiving mail at the Post Office, grocery shopping, visiting your bank and perhaps, using public transportation.

 

In the last few days of your treatment and as part of your program and treatment plan, a planned visit to these sites with the associated activity along with your therapist provides an opportunity to gain self-confidence and to identify any precautions prior to your return to full independence. While you have the opportunity to question your therapist while you are working together, they will be observing for better ways of completing these tasks and providing this training at the same time.

 

The goal of this program is to see that you return to the things you desire to do but with safety and self-confidence. This program is entirely driven by your personal areas of interest and needs. Completion of this program will be personally satisfying and rewarding because of your effort and accomplishment.

Occupational Therapy: Living Skills Retraining

Living Skills Retraining is an occupational therapy component of our RESTORE therapy program. Living Skills Retraining takes place in a setting where occupational therapists retrain specific life skills. Like being in your own home, you will be able to perform kitchen, laundry, bathing/personal hygiene and leisure activities with professional instruction and coaching.

 

Occupational therapists use the Living Skills Retraining environment and their creative ability to select the use of a practical activity, the environment and apply your specific set of self-ability to provide the right challenge for your growth in skill, self-confidence and improvement.

 

Whatever your health condition, our therapists use evidence-based treatment strategies and best practice approaches to select and present graded activities at your specific stage of recovery level. All care sessions are held in the comfortable and familiar surroundings of a home-like environment. The goal is to help you regain your life skills quickly and return to your home.

 

Living skills retraining involves the relearning of those activities of daily living which you perform in your residence. These activities are completed in your kitchen, bathroom, laundry and garage. You perform these tasks almost automatically each day until a medical event or condition occurs and your physical and/or mental abilities decline. Relearning these skills or compensatory techniques (other work around approaches) often becomes necessary for periods of time afterwards.

 

During your recovery, the RESTORE Studio Apartment provides a quiet comfortable and private environment within which the occupational therapist coaches you in regaining your independence.

 

RESTORE occupational therapists work individually with you to identify the living skills which are necessary for a safe and confident return to your residence. These individual skills are broken down into tasks which are evaluated for your treatment plan. This activity analysis allows the occupational therapists to determine exercises which will promote task completion. Sometimes adaptive equipment and training of this equipment, instruction in energy conservation and work simplification techniques improve independence. These skills and techniques are then practiced until you attain the highest level of independence possible before returning home. A number of scoring tools or protocols are used to measure your progress, such as the Modified FIMs tool, a nationally recognized system. This, along with other similar measurement tools, is being requested by insurance companies to pay your medical insurance claim.

 

RESTORE Occupational Therapists are available to complete home assessments prior to your return to home. In the privacy of your own home, the therapist reviews safety hazards, the application of adaptive equipment while you go about your activities in your own environment. This visit will be completed prior to your discharge.

Physical Therapy: Falls Management

Falls Management is part of the physical therapy component of our RESTORE therapy program. This program provides normative data-driven goals. Knowing normal results of our assessments by age-based categories helps determine realistic goals and progression of treatment.

 

The equipment used with exercises provides easy to understand feedback and keeps clients motivated to improve their results. Learning and modifying the factors that lead to falls increase your mobility and confidence, both critical to maintaining your personal confidence.

 

Falls Management is based on well established science and uses technology to create measurable goals. A new clinical format for testing balance includes timed movement protocols and balance equipment. Static and dynamic tests measure the individual’s response to stabilizing their sway. Patterns of sway and a balance index are compared to normative data for these tests and specific to age to identify those responses which fall both inside and outside normal ranges. These abnormal results become the focus for training and improvement for the therapy treatment plan. Patients are instructed in which factors contribute to their imbalance and which present the increased likelihood of a fall. Compensatory responses to imbalance and preventative measures are taught to the patient by the therapist throughout the program. Typical outcomes of patient participation include increased flexibility and mobility, better balance control and greater self confidence in avoidance of falls. Patients experiencing dizziness, loss of sight or hearing, general weakness, joint pain, stokes and Parkinson’s Disease may benefit from this physical therapy evaluation and treatment.

Physical Therapy: Gait Training with Step Out

Step Out is part of the physical therapy component of our RESTORE therapy program. Step Out is a researched-based exercise program developed from principles of gait/walking assessment and training.

 

Step Out has documented patient- improved scores on Stairmaster mobility, strength and endurance tests in people with walking abnormalities.

  

Step Out will teach you how to be active and retain your confidence while walking. It will improve your quality of life with the return to activity and independence.

 

With standardized exercise protocols that adhere to professional practice standards, strength, skill and brain function will be stimulated at personal levels for you individually. The RESTORE Step Out program provides a careful assessment of your ability to walk. Researched, clinical measurement tools/assessments and equipment help to measure a variety of walking characteristics. The therapist observes and scores the distance and speed factor, the rhythm and coordination of movement, foot placement and stride length; these and many other dimensions help the therapist to identify changes in function which may be contributing factors to pain, instability and early muscle fatigue. The measured results are then compared to normative data for these same tests and measurement, analyzed and your treatment plan is designed based upon current, reported research of the best approaches to your problem. Typical outcomes from this program are increased ankle and leg strength, more natural coordination and self-confidence during walking, faster speeds of walking for greater distances, etc. Patients with hip and knee joint replacements, leg arthritis or fractures, peripheral neuropathy, stroke and muscular sclerosis are just a few of the surgical and medical conditions receiving this treatment.
