At Gold Country we offer therapy services to our post-acute patients, skilled nursing residents and out-patient individuals. Our restorative nursing and rehabilitation team is made up of Physical and Occupational therapist, speech-language pathologist and certified restorative nursing assistants.
In an effort to provide a well-rounded program, our team here at Gold Country Healthcare Center provides specialized services for our skilled residents which include:
- Mobility training
- Neuromuscular re-education
- Wii coordination therapy
- Art therapy
- Cardiovascular rehabilitation
- Individually tailored treatment plans, with functional goals
Our physical therapists are trained to help diagnose and treat movement dysfunction with the use of physical and mechanical methods.
Our occupational therapists treat those whose functional abilities have been impaired by illness, injury, or aging. They work with residents to encourage independence and improvement in activities required for daily life.
Areas of treatment within occupational therapy may include functional independence, maintenance of wellness, prevention of further disabilities, or increasing safety awareness.
Speech and Language Therapy
Our speech pathologists make individualized plans with residents to improve areas of chewing, swallowing, communication, fluency, and cognitive communication impairments. Our speech and language pathologists most often treat those affected by stroke and brain injury.
Our restorative nursing and rehabilitation team is made up of registered nurses, licensed practical and vocational nurses, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists and caring and giving certified nursing assistants.
All modalities offered in the skilled unit can be continued as an outpatient, once a patient leaves the skilled unit. Both on-campus residents and community members may utilize our rehabilitation department on an outpatient basis if ordered by their physician and covered by their insurance.
