When an elder is recovering from surgery, injury, or illness, a personalized rehab plan gives them the best chance for a full recovery. Belle Meade offers a wide range of therapy modalities to effectively and efficiently help elders with pain relief, mobility, and the prevention of physical and cognitive disabilities.
Physical Therapy at Belle Meade
The Belle Meade physical therapy program is led by state-licensed physical therapists. Sessions are designed to restore strength, range of motion, balance, coordination, respiration, and motor functions.
Each elder receives a personalized care plan to document progress and allow our physical therapists to accurately assess their ability to become independent and reintegrate into the community safely. Belle Meade helps individuals recovering from:
- Fractured hips and other bones
- Joint pain
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Alzheimer’s Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- And many other conditions
Education is a critical component of our physical therapy program. Our therapists teach each individual to use adaptive devices and make sure they can do prescribed exercises on their own so they can continue at home if necessary. Teaching safety and awareness strategies helps prevent future injuries and is a critical part of our program.
Occupational therapy helps elders achieve maximum function, meaning, and satisfaction in everyday life. Elders learn about the importance of participating in life’s events for overall wellbeing. Belle Meade elders learn how to navigate day to day challenges like getting dressed, bathing, feeding, home management, and social engagement.
Our occupational therapists take a holistic approach to create a plan by assessing:
- Physical condition
- Cognitive condition
- Psychosocial condition
- Sensory condition
Following evaluation, we create individualized care plans based on specific conditions and limitations. An important part of the program is assisting elders with life transitions and preparing them for change.
Belle Meade speech therapists work with our medical staff to develop individualized care plans customized for each individual’s unique needs. Elders may need speech pathology as a result of:
- Brain injury
- Progressive diseases
The speech therapists’ duties include assisting with speech articulation and fluency. If cognitive-communication impairment is present, therapists treat attention and memory deficits, abstract reasoning, and problem-solving deficits.
