Nursing homes also offer rehabilitation therapy, such as:
- Occupational therapy
- Physical therapy
- Speech therapy.
Occupational therapy is an individual treatment that helps patients perform the tasks of daily living, such as dressing. It helps patients become more independent and is good for their self-confidence. Nursing homes regularly assess patients to determine the therapies they can benefit from most.
Physical therapy is an essential nursing home treatment for the elderly. It is part of the recovery process and helps build up muscle strength, balance and coordination. It can also help improve mood and self-esteem.
Speech therapy can help patients who, for example, have had a stroke and have difficulty expressing themselves. Nursing homes understand the importance of patients being able to express their feelings and needs, so communication is important.
Many elderly people who have ulcers or who have had an accident need wound care. This is a core part of the work of every nursing home. People who have difficulty swallowing or getting the nutrients they need may also be given IV therapy.
