Residents receiving rehabilitation therapy may be post-operative for stroke, fracture or joint replacement and will receive an intensive course of therapy. The goal of the treatment team at Newark Extended Care Facility is to maximize and restore each individual to his or her optimum level of function. Additionally, individuals with stroke or neurological disorders, who experience loss of swallowing (dysphasia), will be placed on special programs to aid in the return of function.
Other Rehabilitation Services available are:
- Activities of Daily Living Suite - offers a home-like environment that help train you to get back into the swing of things
- State of the art modalities
- Training steps
- Specialize in orthopedic conditions and neurological impairments
- Multi-cultural staff who speak many languages
Our therapists work with residents to regain strength and coordination, to resume independence with regard to activities of daily living, and to evaluate and address communication problems. Therapists work in conjunction with a discharge planner to ensure a safe and productive discharge to the community.
