Maximizing reimbursement through effective clinical management
Arbor Rehabilitation’s therapy teams are second to none. Due to savvy hiring and retention practices, Arbor Rehabilitation is able to recruit and retain highly skilled Physical Therapists, (PTs), Occupational Therapists (OTs) and Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs) with advanced degrees and extensive experience. Ongoing educational opportunities, competency testing, and mentoring programs as needed ensure that Arbor Rehabilitation’s therapists are ready to succeed in the long term care and skilled care environment.
Arbor Rehabilitation’s Physical Therapists have at least a Bachelor’s degree with many of Arbor Rehabilitation’s PTs having a Doctorate degree. They provide the initial evaluation of posture, gait, balance and strength to develop a treatment plan aimed at enabling the individual to achieve the most independent level of mobility and positioning possible. Physical therapist assistants work with the physical therapist to train the person on customized programs designed to build strength, postural control, coordination, balance and mobility.
Arbor Rehabilitation’s Speech Therapists have a Master’s degree and maintain their Certificate of Clinical Competence through the American Speech-Language- Hearing Association (ASHA). They are skilled at providing both dysphagia interventions to promote safe swallowing abilities and cognitive/ communication rehabilitation. The majority of our Speech Language Pathologists (SLPs) obtain additional certification such as Neuromuscular Electronic Stimulation (NMES) to maximize swallowing re-training. Cognitive/ communication treatments may include techniques to enable the individual to better understand and be understood during daily activities. Approaches may also be developed to enable the individual to effectively and calmly interact with their environment.
Arbor Rehabilitation’s Occupational Therapists have a least a Bachelor’s degree with many of our therapists having a Master’s degree. Occupational therapists provide the initial evaluation of upper body mobility and basic cognition to establish self care strengths and areas for improvement. Occupational therapists also address areas such as positioning and orthotics for those with joint impairments. Occupational therapist assistants work with the occupational therapist to train the individual on techniques to improve their independence with tasks such as dressing, bathing, feeding, toileting and home management as well as orthotic interventions.
