Riceville Family Care & Therapy Center offers Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Speech Therapy. Medicare will cover most or in some cases all of the skilled care costs if the patient qualifies for Medicare Part A. Post-surgery or following a hospitalization, Medicare requires a 3-night hospital stay to qualify the insured for a skilled rehabilitation stay.
Physical Therapy is provided to train a patient how to stand, sit, and walk after a hip or knee surgery. It is also used to rebuild muscle strength or learn how to ambulate and walk after a stroke or severe illness. Physical Therapy is planned, overseen, and assessed by a licensed Physical Therapist, who works with a Therapy Assistant to deliver care and encouragement.
Occupational Therapy is the training to teach a patient how to do activities of daily living after a stroke, critical illness, or surgery. Many times a patient has to be taught how to dress themselves, use their kitchen again to make a meal, or tie their shoes within the boundaries of their new health status. Sometimes adaptive equipment has to be added so a patient can help themselves dress or eat. Occupational therapy is a big part of returning to your own home and doing all those things you love!
Speech Therapy is the training of a patient how to speak or eat after a stroke or injury, or helping to address issues with speech or swallowing that may have gradually become more difficult.
