Goal-minded Physical Support
Whether recovering from an illness or surgery or coping with a chronic condition, our action-oriented program helps maintain and support residents’ whole well-being. A specially trained team of dedicated professionals works with residents to develop an individual physical support plan with short- or long-term goals and encourages them daily to achieve those goals.
In contrast to other care settings in senior living communities that cater to one’s physical or medical needs creating a culture of dependency, our physical support program—set in a personal-care environment—promotes and relies upon the residents’ involvement in their care.
This program is ideal for seniors requiring:
Interim care after:
- A hospitalization
- A surgical procedure
- Short-term rehabilitation
Or long-term management in living with a chronic condition or illness and need more support than traditional personal care or senior living communities can offer, such as:
- Joint replacement
- Joint stiffness
- Muscle weakness and falls
- Arthritis and chronic pain
Those who want to live as independently and safely as possible despite physical limitations should consider this program. Its benefits may help improve an individual’s strength and reduce his or her risk for falling. It can also reduce physical disability and prevent the onset of certain diseases. Residents may even experience improved overall mood and sense of well-being.
Our team meets with residents to learn what is most important to them in achieving a higher quality of life. The residents’ goals and aspiration form the foundation of the plan. Then our team customizes the plan with steps to work toward the expressed goals. While goals can be adjusted based on progress or other factors, the team is committed to motivating and empowering residents to their best abilities.
Though a relatively new program at Ecumenical, we already have success stories to proudly share. For example, because of this program, a long-time resident was able to remain on campus and receive the needed restorative care within a familiar setting rather than leaving her home for an indefinite period. Contact us today to schedule a tour of our program and meet some of these success stories.
