Local Center Provides Therapy 7-Days a Week in a Home-like Setting
Youngtown, Arizona (March 20, 2019) – As more people turn to rehabilitation therapy to fully recover from injury, surgery or illness, there is a greater need for welcoming and comfortable short-term options that help people heal. To help meet this demand for personalized care, LifeStream Complete Senior Living announces the opening of a new Short-Term Rehabilitation Home at its LifeStream at Youngtown community.
The Short-Term Rehabilitation Home at LifeStream provides 10-private bedroom/bathroom suites that circle a grand living room and open concept kitchen in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere with stylish décor that reflects the beauty of Arizona. This innovative approach replaces the cold, institutionalized feel of a therapeutic center with a warm and friendly environment that promotes confidence and independence. It’s unlike any rehabilitation center in the valley.
“No one wants to be away from home, but rehabilitation is essential for seniors to heal properly so they can continue to live independently and avoid issues that can land them back in the hospital,” said Donna Taylor, chief operating officer. “At the Short-Term Rehab Home, we provide our guests unique private rehab suites and daily advanced therapeutic practices in a supportive and nurturing environment that feels more like home.”
The Short-Term Rehab Home encourages its guests to gather around the large family style dining table, cozy up with a good book in the den and enjoy the view from the lovely patio. Seniors can also take part in group activities or practice tasks necessary for independence, such as cooking or folding laundry.
Unlike other rehab centers, Short-Term Rehab Home guests can benefit from therapy 7-days a week through one-on-one sessions with a physical therapist, practicing daily activities, and using an exciting new system called Jintronix. This is an interactive rehabilitation system which uses motion sensors to track clinically designed exercises. Jintronix turns leg lifts and arm raises into fun games to improve outcomes while documenting the patient’s progress automatically.
“Our Short-Term Rehab Home also makes recovery easier on the families because they don’t have to worry about making appointments and driving loved ones around town to see a physical therapist,” continued Donna. “We are excited to open the doors to let guests experience the difference of our person-centered approach that emphasizes dignity for all seniors.”
The Short-Term Rehab Home at LifeStream at Youngtown is a 7,000 square foot, former assisted living location that was remodeled for short-term rehabilitation. Renovations were made possible by generous grants from Virginia G. Piper Charitable Trust ($524,000), the BHHS Legacy Foundation ($105,000), and a private donor ($30,000) totaling more than $650,000.
