Restorative Therapy

Restorative Therapy

Restorative therapy helps residents maintain physical abilities that foster independence and a healthy lifestyle. The experienced professionals at McKnight Place Assisted Living can help residents accomplish the exercise programs designed for them as part of a restorative therapy plan.

Maintain Quality of Life

Restorative therapy is an ideal option for residents who wish to maintain their mobility, balance, and strength. It is a program supplementing occupational and physical therapies with individualized exercise routines. The goal is to maximize the resident’s level of function and increase participation in activities of daily living.

Restorative therapy includes strength training, endurance building, and increasing joint mobility. It is a customized exercise program developed by our licensed therapist and Director of Nursing. Restorative therapy focuses on key goals including

  •      Range of motion
  •      Stair climbing
  •      Strength training
  •      Ambulation
  •      Transfer training (example: from bed to wheelchair)

This type of therapy helps residents maintain independence and stresses the importance of physical movement. Restorative therapy is guided by an assessment made by the resident’s medical practitioner or therapist. It can take place after rehabilitation due to an injury or illness, or can be ongoing as part of long-term care. By restoring the ability to take care of one’s own needs and maximizing abilities, quality of life is improved.
