| Therapy Services At Brookline Manor
Functional independence is the
overall goal of the transitional unit. In order to achieve functional independence
residents are expected to participate in therapies as ordered by their physician.
Residents are up, out of bed and dressed in street clothes. Lunch and dinner are served in
the transitional dining room and residents may choose to eat their meals in these rooms in
the company of others. Homemaking skills, car transfers, negotiation of stairs and/or
working on other activities of daily living are skills residents learn all in anticipation
of their discharge.
Family members are encouraged to participate in therapy
as they may be responsible for assisting a resident after discharge. Within a few days of
admission the staff will meet with residents and their family to discuss and review the
plan of care. Family meetings are held on a regular basis and are designed to share
information with the resident and their family.
The goal of the transitional unit is to return
individuals back to the community.
