Physical therapy also helps patients increase their strength, muscle function, coordination, endurance and mobility.
What all is involved in your Occupational Therapy program?
The activities of daily living are at the heart of occupational therapy: bathing, dressing, cooking, and other personal care needs. Saber’s occupational therapists (OTs) help patients learn how to safely and independently perform these daily tasks, providing peace of mind for both patients and their families.
Our team also helps patients learn how to adapt their daily activities and modify their environments so that they can function better at home.
Can you tell me more about your Speech Therapy program?
Speech therapy goes beyond the patient’s ability to speak clearly. Saber’s speech pathologists (STs) assist patients whose conditions have led to communication problems, memory loss and swallowing difficulty. Speech therapy can help patients better comprehend written and verbal communication and improve their ability to reason and orient themselves. For patients with swallowing disorders, speech therapy also addresses oral muscle strength and function for safe eating and drinking.
What is Saber PATH?
PATH stands for Progressive Approach to Home and it is a unique transitional care model, designed to help get you or your loved one home quickly and safely while reducing hospital admissions. A critical piece to PATH’s success is open, clear, direct communication with families and loved ones in providing necessary information to achieve this.
