Restorative care is provided to an individual to help regain skills that may have been weakened or lost due to illness or injury. These may include personal grooming, range of motion, walking, standing, etc. Restorative care may also be offered when a resident is released from other forms of therapy due to lack of notable progress or improvement. Most sessions take place in the individual's room or our Wellness Center, or may be as simple as taking a walk to the dining area or a friend's room.
Willow Creek's specially trained nursing assistants offer restorative care daily or as recommended by licensed therapists. We provide this service because of the increased value to the resident's health and well-being. Restorative care may include physical, speech or occupational therapy sessions.
It is important to note your loved one enjoys a greater continuity of care because the same staff member conducts the sessions and becomes familiar with the individual's level of functioning. This makes it easier to identify problems or modify an existing treatment program to meet the individual's needs. In addition, family members may have confidence in knowing who to speak to about their loved one's progress.
