Proven And Personalized Rehab for Best Outcomes
Our rehab department provides in-house therapy for post-surgical hip and knee replacement patients, those recovering from hospitalizations for fractures, cardiac events, respiratory illnesses, stroke and generalized weakness. Our rehabilitation team consists of physicians, physiatrists, nurses with specialized training in rehabilitation, and physical, speech and occupational therapists. Together the team uses research and proven techniques to help people get back in motion. A personalized plan of care is developed and tailored to your needs to help restore mobility, independence and health allowing for a smooth transition back into the home and community. Therapy is available seven days a week in a state of the art exercise gym and ADL (activities of daily living) gym to optimize recovery.
Our physical therapists will diagnose and treat patients to help improve functional outcomes after strokes, fractures, joint replacement surgery and other medical conditions. An individualized physical therapy program is developed to improve walking, maximize strength and range of motion, improve balance, and restore all functional mobility. Therapy treatments may include the use of electrical stimulation, ultrasound, diathermy, Omnicycle and NuStep bike in conjunction with specialized hands on therapeutic techniques.
Occupational therapists address the physical, cognitive, and emotional challenges that face a person after the onset of an illness and/or disability, and promote regaining their independence through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). Occupational therapy services include: an individualized evaluation to determine goals; development of a customized intervention plan to increase a person’s independence in daily activities; and monthly plan of care recertifications to ensure that progress is being made towards set goals and/or make adjustments to the CUD’ent intervention plan. Interventions may include the use of exercises, therapeutic activities, compensatory strategies, adaptive equipment, splinting, wheelchair seating/positioning, physical agent modalities, home safety recommendations, and caregiver education to optimize daily life skills.
Speech therapist work to help regain communication, swallowing or thinking skills after a stroke or other acute injury. Speech Therapy also works to ensure swallowing safety with meals as needed by the patient. Swallowing evaluations are performed to determine safety and can be done at the facility (Bedside Endoscopic Study Test). Treatment techniques such as electrical stimulation and deep pharyngeal neuromuscular stimulation may be utilized to aid in returning swallowing function along with a individualized exercise plan.
After my surgery, the rehabilitation that I received at Cherry Lane got me back on my feet quicker than on my own.
I needed to find somebody who would treat my ill mother, like family. The staff was friendly, caring and loving to all the residents. The DON and Admissions Coordinator were more than helpful and answered all my questions. The Administrator is very knowledgeable and alleviated all my fears and misconceptions of nursing homes. I am more than pleased with my decision and my mother enjoys her new home!
I will be ever so grateful to Cherry Lane Nursing Center’s staff and the most outstanding and encouraging therapy team I have ever seen for my two years and 10 month journey and healing. I now return weekly to teach bible study to the residents who have become friends and family.
I had much more progress in one week at Cherry Lane than I ever could have expected. At the end of two weeks after surgery, I returned to George Washington and my Orthopedic Surgeon was ‘astounded’ with the progress I had made in such a short period of time. I could already walk well with a walker and bend my knee 90 degrees. My surgeon said he expected that type of progress in four to six weeks.
We are open 7 days a week. We provide physical, occupational and speech therapy daily. We get a lot of repeat customers because we provide the best services in the area!
