Our Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation (PMR) Department is proud to offer a holistic interdisciplinary care model with specialties in neurological, pulmonary, musculoskeletal, stroke, and spinal cord injury rehabilitation as well as pain management in order to maximize post-acute recovery, develop skills for independent living with chronic conditions, and promote growth to fullest physical, emotional and social potential.
The PMR consultant and team of therapists combine their expertise and resources in a holistic approach while working closely with residents and their families in order to thoroughly assess each individual’s condition, develop patient-centered rehabilitation goals and create tailor-made treatment plans for ProVita residents with a focus on functional rehabilitation and optimizing quality of life.
Physiotherapy helps restore movement and maximize function as much as is possible when someone is affected by injury, chronic illness or by developmental conditions. Physiotherapists at ProVita work with residents who are affected by injury, chronic illness developmental conditions to identify and maximize their functional movement.
This means that physiotherapy plays a key role in enabling residents to improve their health, well-being and quality of life.
Physiotherapists combine their knowledge, skills and approach to improve a broad range of physical problems associated with different ‘systems’ of the body. At ProVita, we treat:
- Neuromuscular (brain and nervous system)
- Musculoskeletal (soft tissues, joints and bones)
- Cardiovascular and respiratory systems (heart and lungs and associated physiology)
Occupational Therapy at ProVita aims to improve basic motor functions and cognitive abilities, as well as compensating for permanent loss of function by providing adaptive equipment or alternative techniques.
We offer caregiver training support and guidance on accessing the home environment of the residents, which we believe contributes to each resident’s ability to lead a productive and satisfying life – regardless of the extent of their disabilities. Quality of life, comfort, balance and social integration are what we strive to achieve. And, because ‘quality of life’ means different things to different patients, we work hard to help caregivers and family understand that for some residents, even the smallest activities can have a tremendously positive effect on an individual who is on long-term ventilation or suffering from a chronic illness.
