Allegany Health Nursing and Rehabilitation
We take great pride in our ability to return patients to their highest functional
levels. Working in conjunction with nursing and social work, our rehabilitation
staff ensures maximum recovery for all residents.
How can we achieve such remarkable results?
Our partnership with Anchor Rehabilitation enables us to provide each patient with
the highest quality rehabilitative care possible. Anchor’s sole focus is geriatric
rehabilitation, so their 30 years of experience providing therapy to the senior
community ensures our patients receive specialized Physical, Occupational, and Speech
therapy that’s just right for seniors.
Anchor’s Physical therapy uses specifically designed exercises, treatments, and
equipment to improve physical abilities including balance, strength, and mobility.
Anchor’s Occupational therapy uses a holistic approach to help patients adapt
to recent limitations or disabilities caused by illness or injury - to restore old
skills or teach new ones. Treatment focuses on activities of daily living, such
as bathing, dressing, grooming and feeding as well as problem-solving, safety and
Anchor’s Speech therapy helps individuals with communication and/or swallowing disorders
and may include evaluation of speech, language, voice, swallowing and cognitive
or “thinking” skills such as memory, decision-making and safety.
Using specialized equipment and treatment regimens from Accelerated Care Plus (ACP),
our therapists provide effective treatment for a variety of conditions such as surgical
wounds, stroke recovery, pressure ulcers, urinary incontinence, peripheral neuropathy,
carpal tunnel syndrome, fall prevention, total knee and hip replacement, rheumatoid
and osteoarthritis, contractures, and pain management.
In addition to our therapy department, our nurse-directed restorative program helps
our permanent residents maintain the highest level of function and independence
possible. The restorative aide is responsible for carrying out the individualized
exercise and walking programs designed in collaboration with the restorative nurse
and Anchor therapists.
