Rehabilitation Therapy

Our therapy team is made up of physical, occupational, and speech language therapists who are committed to the short-term rehabilitation of our residents. At Mid-Nebraska Lutheran Home, we focus on providing outstanding results so that our patients can get back to doing the activities that they love. Each patient’s rehabilitation program is designed to address the specific needs of the individual in order to allow them to return to their maximum independence. We encourage our resident’s families to partake in therapy sessions as well. We will provide the families with the caregiver education and training they need to help our residents achieve their highest level of function.

Some areas of treatment offered include:

  • Physical therapy programs to increase strength and movement in the body, increase strength and control for a resident who has suffered a stroke, improve coordination, balance, and pain management following a fracture or injury, improve range of motion and endurance, and education in areas such as safety awareness, pain management, and general strengthening.
  • Occupational therapy programs to assist with eating, bathing, toileting, homemaking, cooking dressing, and grooming. Therapists may also complete home assessments to make recommendations for a resident’s return home.
  • Speech therapy programs put focus on improving speech, voice clarity, verbal expression, chewing and swallowing capability, as well as cognitive difficulties.
