Allegiant Healthcare is comprised of treatment teams that specialize in caring for patients who have complex medical conditions and are not ready to be on their own. These are patients/residents who need more time and more attention. They need specialized physician and nursing care. All of our services offer the attentive, compassionate care that your loved one needs most during this vulnerable time.
Physiotherapy is an important part of recovery for many different health problems. Targeted exercises and techniques can help patients reduce pain, improve strength and balance to prevent falls, regain mobility after joint replacement or other surgeries, and improve gait and balance in stroke survivors. A trained physical therapist can also prescribe appropriate mobility aids and orthotic devices, if necessary.
Occupational therapists assist patients in learning how to safely and effectively carry out ADLs and instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) and meet personal goals for regaining functional abilities. This process involves relearning ways of doing “common” activities (with or without assistive devices) and how to alter living environments to be conducive to a patient’s temporary or permanent functional limitations.
Speech-Language Pathology (SLP)
Patients who are in rehab for things like stroke recovery, a traumatic brain injury (TBI), or progressive neurological diseases can suffer from problems like aphasia, dysphagia, dysarthria and apraxia, which affect the ability to comprehend and produce speech. Working with a trained Speech-Language Pathologist can help these patients to regain and improve their communication skills and ability to safely eat and drink.
