Rehabilitation Services for Seniors in Oregon City

Achieve Independence again with rehabilitative therapy. At Avamere Rehabilitation of Oregon City, your life is our commitment and in many instances that means helping you achieve independence with daily tasks. After an illness or accident, your ability to complete normal routines or movements could be compromised. Our physical, speech, and occupational therapists are here to address a range of issues from balance control, the ability to swallow, brushing teeth, and a host of other activities of daily living. Upon admission, our rehabilitative staff will work with you to develop an individualized program designed to help improve daily function, increase level of comfort, and prevent long-term disability.Mature Man Working With a Physical Therapist

Occasionally in the rehabilitation process a patient is no longer in need of skilled nursing care but could still benefit from occasional treatment from one of our licensed therapists. Outpatient rehab works around your schedule, so you can rehabilitate while focusing on the other important parts of your life.

When a person gets injured or has a prolonged illness, doctors often recommend physical therapy. In the case of seniors, though, that recommendation is often seen as just something to try. This misconception could not be further from the truth. Physical therapy is top quality therapy for many conditions affecting the elderly, from Alzheimer’s to urinary incontinence.

Therapy will help you get your life back on track. If you’ve lost the ability to do even the most simple of tasks, our skilled physical, occupational, and speech therapy team in Oregon City, Oregon can help you gain back your independence.

Physical Therapy for Seniors is a regarded practice for older adults from every level of physical ability to improve balance and strength, build confidence, and remain active. A number of people are familiar with physical therapy as a form of treatment to pursue after an accident, or to cope with a persistent health condition such as Alzheimer’s. For us, Physical Therapy is a way for seniors to maintain independence later in life.

At the hands of a trained and experienced Physical Therapist, one can work toward improving balance, strength, mobility, and overall fitness – all of which older adults may benefit from. Participating in regular physical therapy could contribute to improved physical abilities, which can also help older adults avoid falls.

Oregon City Occupational Therapy

Our Occupational Therapists work in tandem with our Physical Therapists to improve Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s). Occupational Therapists work with a senior to develop and adopt a routine of beneficial daily activities based on the client’s individual needs. We strive to get our patients back in control of life.

For example, an elderly woman who used to be active with hands-on volunteer work might stop because her worsening arthritis makes her frustrated and uncomfortable. An Occupational Therapist could talk with the woman and discover the right kinds of volunteer work for her to do and find ways to accommodate the arthritis and help her adopt exercises to help alleviate it.

Oregon City Speech Therapy

As you grow older, your vocal cords become less elastic and your larynx muscles weaken. This makes it difficult for many elderly people to speak as they once did, and it makes it more difficult for those around them to understand what they are saying. Speech therapy can help teach the patient to speak in a new way, with vocal exercises that will help them communicate more effectively.

Help make your journey back to physical independence and good health a success by working with the staff at our Oregon City rehab center, Avamere Rehabilitation of Oregon City.
