Rehabilitation services are effective
Millcreek Manor our comprehensive rehabilitation programs offer our residents the opportunity to
achieve their goals. For many residents, rehabilitation provides them with the opportunity to
resume their former lifestyles. Other residents discover that our programs encourage optimal
independence, high self-esteem, and motivation. Each resident lives as independently as possible
within the facility.
Our rehabilitation programs have proven to be beneficial to
residents presenting with a wide variety of conditions: strokes, orthopedic procedures,
amputations, and other clinically complex situations. Our physical, occupational, and speech
therapy services are provided by our team of licensed or certified therapists who are committed to
enhancing the quality of life for our residents.
Our rehabilitation team works with
the entire Millcreek Manor staff to ensure that each resident has the opportunity to reach their
highest level of independence. Residents who are able to return home are provided with home
evaluations to assure that any adaptations or accommodations are made to make the return home
Our Rehabilitation Department provides:
Therapy – Our physical therapists work with residents to restore their highest level of
functioning, improve their mobility, and to relieve their pain. The physical therapists’ goal
is to restore, maintain and promote each resident’s overall health and fitness.
- Occupational Therapy – Our occupational therapists work with residents
to improve their ability to perform tasks of daily living. The occupational therapists work with
residents who have physical conditions that are challenging physically, mentally, and emotionally.
The primary goal of our occupational therapists is to assist residents with developing, recovering,
or maintaining skills for daily living.
- Speech Therapy – Our
speech therapists help residents who have deficits with speech and voice, language and
communication, swallowing disorders, and cognitive functioning problems.
- Restorative Nursing – At Millcreek Manor, our Restorative Nursing program is
guided under the direction of a registered nurse for those residents who do not require formal
physical or occupational therapy services. Individualized restorative activities help our
residents improve or maintain their independence as long as possible. Our goal is to aid residents
in achieving optimal physical, psychological, emotional and social potential in order to maintain
dignity and self-respect. The restorative program is nursing staff working closely with physicians
and therapists to develop the best plan for residents with activities including ambulation
exercises, dining skills, range of motion exercises, etc.
