HOSPITAL: After major surgery, illness or an accident, patients often leave the hospital in a weakened condition and without basic skills for living. CRITICAL SKILLS: The first step is to begin moving again. LifeWorks Rehab patients perform simple activities like sitting up, stretching and bending that will help start the healing process. ESSENTIAL SKILLS: LifeWorks Rehab patients work on the essentials of mobility, activities of daily living, and communication. Therapies help regain skills necessary for daily functioning by building strength, flexibility, balance and endurance.TRANSITIONAL SKILLS: Independence begins with the reacquisition of daily living skills. While LifeWorks Rehab patients are healing, the therapy team helps them relearn skills like bathing, cooking, dressing, and cleaning. The patient also gets a home visit, learns to ambulate on different surface, and focuses on more difficult and complex activities of daily living.COMMUNITY SKILLS: Lifeworks patients prepare for life after rehab. Therapies include relearning favorite hobbies and activities, and preparing to work and play in the community. HOME: LifeWorks Rehab patients return home ready to live independently. Follow up visits help fine tune skills, ensure that healing is progressing and promote complete recovery. ACCELERATION ZONE: A LifeWorks Recovery Map exclusive.
