SARAHCARE’S RESTORATIVE NURSING PROGRAM helps participants maintain their independence by maintaining or improving their abilities with daily living activities. The program often sees success in a short period of time and can help in these areas:
- sitting, standing, and walking
- proper use of a cane or walker
- toileting and transferring
- dressing and grooming
WHAT IS THE GOAL OF RESTORATIVE NURSING?
The goal of this personalized program is to allow the participant to remain as independent as possible for as long as possible.
HOW IS RESTORATIVE NURSING DIFFERENT FROM REHAB?
Rehabilitation therapy is focused on improving specific skills in a short period of time following an injury. Restorative Nursing is a continuous, long term program to improve and prolong a person’s abilities. While the two programs are different, restorative often works with rehab to help maintain the skills gained in therapy.
