Rehabilitation

Did you know Lincoln Park Manor offers extensive rehabilitation services?

In fact, therapy services make up over 63% of their skilled nursing area. “It’s always been a focus for our business and the community really needs to think of us, not just as a nursing home, but as a medically
diverse establishment,” explained Dr. Heckman, Medical Director.

We’ve come a long way from the “old school” ways that most nursing homes used to operate on. There were more acute, long term care patients years ago than what there are today. People stay in their homes longer and are living longer.

Over the past ten years or so, Lincoln Park Manor has transitioned into more therapy driven services that meet the needs of today’s seniors, as well as specialty therapies like our Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) program.

Typical stays are driven by elective surgeries for hip and knee replacements and most patients are discharged after less than a three week stay. Many who are planning these procedures… Continue reading on our blog>

Hip and Knee Replacement Therapy

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is one-on-one skilled treatment aimed at helping someone resume the abilities required for independent
living. When it comes to getting back to your hobbies, cooking, dressing and things you love doing like knitting or putting a hook on your fishing pole, fine motor skills therapy can be in order after some experience a stroke or serious illness. For example, your doctor might prescribe occupational therapy following a heart attack or stroke, for a chronic condition such as arthritis, or for problems maintaining balance. Our OT team will get you moving and set up home evaluations and assistance.

WHOM WE HELP: Adults of any age, who need to regain motor skills or to compensate for a permanent loss to successfully perform tasks such as dressing, cooking, eating, or computer use.

WHAT TO EXPECT: Following an illness or injury, the process of relearning skills may require a stay in our rehab center to gain strength and learn alternative approaches to daily activities.

Occupational Therapy can include:

  • Treatment programs for low vision, hand therapy, balance rehabilitation
  • Wheelchair positioning and splinting
  • Home safety assessments and adaptation equipment training
  • Performance skills assessment and treatment
  • Activities of daily living (ADL’s)
  • Fine motor skills training
  • Energy conservation and work simplification training

Speech Therapy

Sometimes an illness, hearing impairment, or other disability can rob you of the ability to talk and communicate. Speech-language
therapy is all about improving swallowing, relearning word formation, and your ability to speak and remember.

WHOM WE HELP: Any adult with communication or swallowing deficits including those with aphasia, dysarthria, apraxia of speech, traumatic brain injury, dysphagia, dementia or other neurologic impairment.

WHAT TO EXPECT: Following hospitalization or a medical illness, speech and swallowing abilities may not return overnight. Common treatments may include strengthening exercises, viewing visual aids, cognitive exercises, as well as developing problem solving strategies for a successful rehabilitation.

Getting your pipes back working is essential and our Speech and Language Pathologists will work with you through these difficulties in regaining those skills. Regular exercises and working as part of a team has helped us achieve positive outcomes.

Speech Therapy can include:

  • Verbal expression training
  • Oral-motor exercises
  • Comprehension
  • Swallowing therapy
  • Articulation
  • Aural rehabilitation

CHF Rehabilitation Program

The Benefits of a Team Approach

Lincoln Park Manor offers a comprehensive CHF rehabilitation program with advanced treatment options with active patient centered management.  Our program has four phases to ensure each patient meets critical milestones and learns valuable skills before going home.

Phase 1- Educational/ Gaining Skills:  How to measure and record daily weight, exertion levels, oxygen saturation levels, blood pressure, heart rate, etc.

Phase 2- How to Avoid Swelling: Swelling is a warning sign, so patients are taught proactive solutions like keeping legs elevated and limiting your exertion for daily activities.

Phase 3- Performing All Tasks by Themselves: When the training is complete, they move on to doing it for themselves each day.  Patients are monitored until it become routine so they don’t forget anything.

Phase 4- Going Home Training: Our nurses and rehab team assess their home environment to remove obstacles and ensure they understand what to eat, when to take medications and self assessment if swelling occurs.

INPATIENT & OUTPATIENT PROGRAM   Whether you come here from a hospital stay after a heart attack or have been diagnosed with CHF and been dealing with it for years, you can get treatment here at our facility.

TEAM APPROACH   Our program is structured so everyone involved from your doctor, nurses, rehab team and your family are able to provide support.  Most importantly, the patient knows the lifestyle changes needed when they complete the program.
