At Haym Salomon Home for Nursing and Rehabilitation in Brooklyn NY, our skilled team of practitioners works with you or your loved ones in all five of these domains. We maintain and enhance memory, attention and arrest cognitive decline.
Our patient’s specific therapy might include learning to use adaptive or assistive technology. Or it may involve learning a new way to think about and strategize their way around a problem. Whatever the specific treatment includes, you can be assured that it will help improve the quality of life of your loved one.
Improvements in cognitive function can have dramatic impacts on the life of you or your loved one. Improved mobility and self-care ability can lead to significant increases in self-confidence and happiness. Occupational therapy, by reducing cognitive decline, can even reduce or eliminate depressive symptoms.
Encouragingly, these improvements can be self-sustaining. We can increase our patients’ abilities to function in a dynamic and social setting and eliminate one of the main risk factors of cognitive decline, simply by having the patient continue to interact with the world and people around them.
