PT Plus at Mountainside Senior Living
PT Plus has partnered with Mountainside Senior Living to promote health and wellness throughout the facility and provide on-site therapy.
We offer continuity of therapeutic care in three stages:
STAGE I: Home Health Therapy - Appropriate for residents who are unable to leave the home without assistance. Typically these residents have difficulty transferring, are unable to go up and down steps without assistance, and leaving home requires a significant and taxing effort.
Residents at this stage will work with at PT Plus therapist contracted through a local home health agency to provide intensive physical therapy which may or may not be paired with skilled nursing.
STAGE II: On-Site Outpatient Therapy - Appropriate for residents who have graduated from home health therapy and still have rehab needs, or residents who have been initially evaluated and not considered homebound.
Residents at this stage will work with a PT Plus Therapist once or twice a week in the clinic located on the 4th floor. Therapists will work with residents to identify the underlying cause of their complaint (i.e. difficultly walking, frequent and/or recent falls, pain, strength deficits etc.) and execute a care plan to help address these issues. Therapists use a variety of techniques to help educate, rehabilitate and strengthen residents until goals are met.
STAGE III: Continuing Wellness /Monitored Exercise - Once residents have met therapy goals in the clinic it is important to continue with strengthening and cardiovascular exercises to prevent a decline in function.
Residents at this stage will work with a staff "champion" who will assist in monitoring proper exercise techniques and use of equipment as well as encourage resident to continue with their prescribed exercise routine.
