Generations at Elmwood Park offers restorative nursing care for patients and residents that need help restoring, stabilizing, or improving their level of functioning.
What is Restorative Care?
A person of any age who suffers serious illness or injury may require rehabilitation and/or restorative care. For instance, therapists in rehabilitation work to help people regain physical function using a medical model. Restorative care is part of an ongoing nursing model, and often follows rehabilitation. Licensed and paraprofessional staff members provide restorative care to preserve a person’s optimum level of functioning and independence.
Who Should Participate in Restorative Care?
A patient that needs to restore, stabilize, or improve their level of independence so that they can achieve their highest practicable level of functioning. This may occur for a patient currently in rehabilitation, or once discharged from the rehabilitation therapy program. A patient may also find themselves needing restorative care if admitted to the healthcare facility, but not eligible for skilled therapy.
