Uniondale, NY, May 23, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Townhouse Center for Rehabilitation & Nursing, a local skilled nursing facility announced today, the introduction of an important new program developed to provide effective treatment options for several prevalent geriatric health conditions. Initially, the new program will include treatment for Pain Management, Wounds, Fall Prevention, Contractures, Stroke and will soon cover conditions including Bladder Control, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Shingles, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Neuromuscular conditions such as Parkinson’s.
These conservative treatment programs were developed specifically for the complex needs of aging adults using non-invasive, medication-free therapies. The programs utilize specialized therapeutic equipment that has been used effectively with the elderly for over a decade, and among professional athletes for nearly 30 years to accelerate recovery following injury.
“Providing great patient care is the guiding principle for all that we do,” said Nardia Aldridge, Director of Rehabilitation. “Our new specialized treatment programs are intended to help residents with prevalent geriatric conditions preserve their independence, dignity, and quality-of-life for as long as possible.”
The new treatment programs at Townhouse Center for Rehabilitation & Nursing will be implemented by their therapy and nursing departments in conjunction with the resident’s physician, and Accelerated Care Plus, the nation’s leading provider of “evidence-based” clinical programs for long-term care facilities, sub-acute treatment centers and rehab service providers.
“By decreasing pain, inflammation and edema, our state-of-the-art therapeutic equipment can increase patient comfort for other rehabilitation techniques," said Ken Micko, ACP’s Clinical Program Manager in the area. “They can also help therapists treat more complex conditions, increase strength, accelerate recovery and improve neuromuscular control in patients with orthopedic and neurological diagnoses.”
“We want the community and our area medical professionals to know we are committed to quality care and progressive therapy techniques,” said Nardia Aldridge. “Our staff is really excited about these new programs. We’re convinced it is going to make a difference in the lives of our patients and their families.”
