Cardiac Rehabilitation

The goal of the Cardiac Rehabilitation program is to help people with heart disease recover sooner and return to full, productive lives. The facility contracts with a Medical Director, Nurse Practitioner, and Medical Specialty Pulmonologist. The patient is considered an integral part of the cardiac rehab team, along with independent primary and cardiac physicians, nurses, exercise specialists, and dieticians. Cardiac rehabilitation begins in the hospital and continues on an outpatient basis after discharge.

Consider Cardiac or Pulmonary Rehabilitation after a major cardiac or pulmonary illness such as:

  • Heart Attack
  • Coronary Artery Bypasses Graft Surgery
  • Heart Failure
  • Chronic Bronchitis
  • Chest Pain
  • COPD
  • Emphysema
  • Chronic Asthma
  • Pneumonia
  • Other related conditions

The goals of cardiac rehab are that patients may expect to experience the following benefits:

  • Less shortness of breath
  • Ability to resume some hobbies and activities they once enjoyed
  • Less fatigue after performing daily chores
  • Greater strength and endurance
  • Less depression and anxiety
  • Better understanding of ways to manage their disease
  • Fewer hospitalizations
  • Greater Independence
  • Improved quality of life

What to expect in Rehab:

  • Assessment of current functional status
  • Exercise training and other therapeutic exercise
  • Education and skills training
  • Nutritional assessment
  • Psychosocial assessment, support, and intervention if necessary
  • Smoking cessation, if currently smoking
  • Medication management and education
  • Implementation of a home treatment program and possible follow-up

Physical Therapy

Physical Therapists will evaluate:

  • Joint Range of motion
  • Muscle Strength
  • Ability to transfer out of bed as well as other surfaces
  • Ability to Walk
  • Balance
  • Prior level of fuction

Based on the evaluation, a care plan will be developed and may focus on:

  • Teaching strengthening and range of motion excercises
  • Pain management strategies
  • Safety precautions
  • Walking with crutches or walker
  • Using appropriate safety precautions when transferring in and out of bed and on and off other surfaces
  • Educating your family/caregiver on using safety precautions
  • Improving balance to decrease the risk of falling
  • Providing education to you and your family/caregiver on safety strategies and techniques (this will enable successful and safe access to home upon discharge as appropriate)

Occupational Therapy

An Occupational Therapist will assess your:

  • Upper body strength and range of motion to assist during recovery
  • Ability to transfer on and off the toilet and other surfaces
  • Abillity to dress, bathe, and perform personal hygiene

Based on this evaluation your individualized treatment plan will be developed and may focus on:

  • Teaching upper body strengthening and range of motion exercises
  • Pain management strategies
  • Safety precautions
  • Appropriate safety precautions when transferring to the toilet and other surfaces
  • Educating you on the use of adaptive equipment for dressing, bathing, and other activities of daily living
  • Educating you on joint protection and energy conservation techniques

Care Services

Speech Therapy

The speech therapist determines if there is a developmental or acquired speech/language or swallowing issue and whether the patient would benefit from speech therapy.

Skilled Nursing

This is designed for patients with short-term needs and is provided by qualified, trained professionals. The plan of care is developed with the individual needs of the patient in mind, with the goal of facilitating a return to home or improvements in functional status.

Long-term Care

Patients are individuals who require 24-hours nursing care and some level of assistance with activities of daily living such as eating, bathing, grooming, dressing and walking. This level of care is significantly different from skilled care, in that no time limit is set on the plan of care. Therefore it is long-term in nature.

Respite Care

Designed as a service to the growing number of caregivers in the community. Trained professionals provide respite services – whether for a few days or a few weeks, to give caregivers a much needed rest and opportunity to take a vacation.
