Physical, Occupational and Speech Therapy

Regaining physical strength and returning to an active, comfortable lifestyle after an illness, injury or surgery should be a positive and invigorating experience. When a patient works with our physical, occupational, and speech therapists, we begin by developing a treatment plan.

 

Physical Therapy:

Gross motor development, balance and coordination, gait training, strength, endurance and exercise training, lower extremity and trunk range of motion activities, functional independence (including bed mobility, transfers and wheelchair mobility), weight management, burn care and follow-up treatment, evaluation for equipment to increase independence and enhance performance, family and patient instruction and education, and coordination of care, including discharge needs.

Occupational Therapy:

Fine motor skills and coordination development, activities of daily living (such as feeding, swallowing, dressing, bathing/hygiene and use of equipment to increase independence and enhance performance), upper extremity and trunk range of motion activities, visual perceptual/visual motor skills, sensory integration, burn care (including scar management and pressure garments), and family and patient instruction and education.

Homecare & Companion Services

Personal Hygiene:

At Pavilion Medical, we know that it can be difficult for our patients to keep up with their personal hygiene when they are feeling ill, or have recently had surgery or recently returned home after a long hospital stay. That’s why our staff helps our patients with hygiene practices that prevents and / or minimizes disease and the spread of disease.

We understand that people with reduced immunity to infection, who are looked after at home, make up an increasing proportion of the population, according to research presented at the 2009 International Scientific Forum on Home Hygiene.

That’s why our team of professionals is careful to help our patients maintain independence and dignity, while keeping them safe and clean.

Among other personal hygiene needs, we assist with:

Bathing: This promotes good health, helps your loved one to relax, and provides an opportunity for increasing circulation and moving the extremities of a bed-bound person. We help transfer the patient to the bathtub or walk to take a shower or tub bath, assist with a bed bath, and shampoo their hair.

Grooming: Since good grooming is important to a person’s self-esteem, we assist with combing or brushing hair, providing fingernail care, providing foot care, helping someone shave, assisting with oral care, performing oral care on an unconscious person, flossing teeth, assisting with denture care, and reinserting dentures.

Using the toilet: Because our patients may also need assistance using the bathroom, we assist in helping them use a bedpan, urinal, and when possible take them to the toilet or a portable commode.

Medication Reminders:

Approximately 125,000 deaths and up to 25 percent of annual hospital and nursing home admissions are related to patients straying from their medication schedule, according to researchers by Kathleen Mazor, Susan Billings-Gagliardi, and Melissa Fischer in an article published in the Journal of Communication in Healthcare, entitled: “Initial Acceptance of Treatment with Antihypertensive Medication; the Importance of Communication, Trust, and Beliefs.”

The biggest finding in the study was that there are four major beliefs that impact whether a patient will accept the drug treatment: trust in the physician, the perception that the physician communicated well, the belief that medication is effective, and the belief that doctors don’t prescribe unsafe medications.

At Pavilion Medical Home Health Care, we understand the situation from the patients’ point of view. That’s why we provide medical reminders to our clients. We regularly call individuals, reminding them to take pills and medications at a prescribed date and time. To learn more about this service, contact us at info@pavilionmedical.com
