After hospitalization for surgery or medical treatment, many patients benefit from an action oriented rehabilitation regimen. The driving goal and ambition at Mary Ann Morse is patient achievement, and a swift return to an active normal lifestyle. This may mean returning to home, or getting back to work. Whatever the destination, the medical, nursing and rehabilitation staff at Mary Ann Morse strive to move patients along the care continuum toward the highest achievable goals.
Rehabilitation care is often measured by gains or improvement in movement – how easily and confidently one walks, reaches for a door handle, or turns to answer a familiar voice. In addition to these functional improvements, the rehabilitation professionals at Mary Ann Morse continuously strive to instill confidence, along with the ability to move and navigate everyday life.
For post-operative care, the nursing rehabilitation team manages patients’ pain and discomfort while carefully monitoring the healing and recuperation process. For example, following hip or knee replacement surgery (arthroplasty), physical and occupational therapists work daily to guide, encourage and move joint replacement rehab patients along the continuum of care toward the highest possible functional independence. Each patient’s ambulation, gate training and range of motion are carefully balanced and closely monitored, along with pain management and surgical wound healing to assure the fastest possible surgical recuperation following joint replacement. Our services include:
- short-term rehab
- hip replacement rehab
- knee replacement rehab
- back to work / returning to work
- back to home / returning home
- medical care
- convenient location
Improving range of motion and ambulation are important clinical objectives to walking again and returning to as active a lifestyle as possible.
