A Brooklyn-based rehabilitation center, Haym Salomon Home, offers pre-rehab services to the elderly. To calm the mind, the facility offers respiratory therapy, part of which is breathing exercises. The staff works with improving the mental strength of the patient who will undergo surgery. It also offers the appropriate therapy treatments to the patient to prepare them for what is to come.
Geriatric pre-rehabilitation is vital as it teaches the client discipline to follow treatment plans. But the success of the surgery does not only rely on pre-rehabilitation but the continued rehab after the operation.
