Beth Sholom Village’s occupational and physical therapists are trained in helping each patient lead life as independently as possible.
Occupational therapists can help stroke survivors regain their strength to again engage in daily activities. Because a stroke may cause temporary or permanent weakness or paralysis on one side of the body, a person who has suffered a stroke may have difficulty caring for himself or herself, such as in bathing, dressing, and managing a household or a job. Stroke can affect a person’s vision, memory, speech, and muscle strength, as well as his or her ability to drive a car safely and engage in daily activities. Our goal is to get residents back to performing their normal daily activities at as high a level as possible.
Local orthopedic surgeons regularly refer their hip and knee patients to Beth Sholom Village.
Our highly trained physical therapists are primarily concerned with the remediation of impairments and disabilities, and the promotion of mobility, functional ability, quality of life and movement potential through examination, evaluation, diagnosis and physical intervention.
