Physical Therapy for Seniors - PT
Mountain Vista provides physical therapy services for seniors to help regain strength, improve functional skills, coordination and balance. Physical therapy can also address and often improve issues or concerns that are a part of the natural aging process, such as managing pain or poor endurance levels. An individual’s functional abilities may have diminished due to a number of different circumstances, for example:
- Parkinson's disease
- Cardiac disease
- Complex surgeries
- Other medical and neuromuscular diseases
Regardless of the condition, our physical therapy programs strive to help residents achieve their recovery goals.
Occupational Therapy for Seniors - OT
Occupational therapy focuses residents’ efforts on regaining the ability to perform self-care tasks and activities of daily living (ADLs). For example, relearning fine motor coordination and visual perception, increasing upper body strength and improving dexterity for bathing and dressing.
Occupational therapy for seniors at Mountain Vista’s rehabilitation center also can help evaluate wheelchair positioning to avoid soreness, review splinting needs and perform home safety assessments to make certain residents can return safely home.
Speech and Language Therapy for Seniors – ST
Speech therapy for seniors helps residents learn and master new communication skills, compensate for hearing loss and manage difficulties with chewing and swallowing. The program can also assist residents who may suffer from oral motor dysfunction, memory loss and reduced comprehension. The overall goal is to help residents regain the skills to remain socially engaged.
Restorative Nursing Program
Mountain Vista's restorative nursing programs are individually designed to guide residents following completion of their active rehabilitation program. The program's purpose is to ensure residents continue working on the tasks identified by the therapist and maintain the compensation skills learned in their active therapy program. The program is also designed to prevent the decline in an individual's functional abilities by maintaining an active strengthening, balance and coordination exercise routine.
