Many area physicians refer patients to Athens, where the comprehensive rehabilitation team constructs individualized treatment programs for both short term and long term stays. The primary goal in both short term and long term rehabilitation is helping residents achieve their goals while reaching an optimum level of function and improving quality of life.
The programs are reviewed as a team along with the residents and families. Goals and strategies change based on the progress and discharge destination. Families and caregivers are involved from evaluation to home assessment and trained on specific techniques and equipment that may be beneficial to the resident’s care. Specific care is also taken to help the resident’s family members through this transition.
Athens’s therapy gym features advanced equipment for physical and occupational therapy. The licensed Physical, Occupational and Speech therapists have the backing of a nationally recognized rehabilitation organization and are committed to helping each person regain the highest level of healing and strength.
