The Care of Professionals. The Comforts of Home.

The road to recovery can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be traveled alone. It’s at times like these that you need a caring hand more than ever, and a place that gives you peace of mind.

With Therapy Center rehabilitation services, you have the assurance of knowing that you or your loved one is receiving the best possible care.

Physical Therapy is a type of treatment prescribed when injury or illness makes daily tasks difficult or painful. Your physician may suggest Physical Therapy for a range of issues including back pain, tendon or ligament problems, arthritis, and a range of illness and injuries.

Speech Therapy evaluates and remediates any speech, language, cognitive and swallowing difficulties (dysphagia.) A Speech Language Pathologist will develop a plan of care aimed at increasing the individual’s ability to communicate and help deal with any issues related to swallowing deficits, including facilitating reduction of artificial nutrition.

A Speech Therapy treatment may include:

  • Cognition training
  • Expressive receptive language
  • Swallowing disorders (dysphagia)
  • Voice therapy
  • Aural Rehabilitation
  • Augmentative Communication
Occupational Therapy helps individuals overcome illness, injury, or psychological problems in order to live independent, productive, and satisfying lives. Through work, self-care, and recreational activities, Occupational Therapists help patients increase independent function and get back to daily activities. Occupational Therapy treatment may include:

  •             Activities of daily living re-training
  •             Joint protection education
  •             Energy conservation education

Qualified Medicare Part A patients are eligible for up to 100 days of skilled services in a benefit period. Skilled Nursing Facilities (SNF) are currently the only treatment setting where qualified patients can receive therapy 5 days per week for up to 100 days. Intensive therapy after illness or injury often decreases recovery time and chance of re-hospitalization.

  • Must have Medicare Part A Benefits
  • Must have a qualifying hospital stay (minimum of 3 nights)
  • Must be admitted into a skilled facility within 30 days of a hospital discharge with a diagnosis requires skilled nursing services and/or skilled rehab services
  • Skilled services must be ordered by a physician

If a patient does not meet the Medicare Part A criteria, then it is possible that Medicare Part B or private insurance would cover rehabilitation services in a skilled nursing facility. Contact Therapy Center to discuss your individual benefit requirements.

 

Note: Within a benefit period or spell of illness. A “benefit period” begins the day a patient enters a hospital or skilled nursing facility (SNF). The benefit period ends when a patient hasn’t received any hospital care or skilled care in a SNF for 60 days in a row. If a patent enters a hospital or a SNF after one benefit period has ended, a new benefit period beings. The inpatient hospital deductible must be paid for each benefit period. There is no limit to the number of benefit periods. (www.medicare.gov)
