The ultimate goal of inpatient rehabilitation is to restore the patient’s quality of life to a state similar to their standard of living prior to experiencing their illness or injury. In the case of geriatric rehabilitation, these injuries are often related to diminishing physical capacity associated with their age.
A substantial portion of the rehabilitation focuses on redeveloping our residents’ physical strength to where they can live at a maximum functional level. Our state of the art, short-term inpatient physical therapy centers provide residents with the physical, cognitive, and emotional support needed to improve their quality of life.
After completing their geriatric rehabilitation program, a physician may recommend that the resident be transferred to a PHSK outpatient program. Presbyterian Homes & Services of Kentucky has an exceptional staff of physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech therapist who specialize in outpatient senior rehabilitation.
