REHABILITATION SERVICES

Residents at Cahokia Nursing & Rehabilitation Center are assisted in their goals for recovery through efforts of an interdisciplinary team of caring, experienced, rehabilitation professionals. Goals may include improving strength, mobility, feeding abilities, speech recovery and a return to activities of daily living with minimum discomfort and maximum productivity.

  • Physical therapists (PT) focus on increasing movement. That includes bed mobility, transferring from the bed to a chair or toilet, walking, using stairs, and/or wheel chair mobility. The therapists also work with residents to decrease pain and improve strength, endurance, balance and range of motion.
  • Occupational therpaists (OT) help residents become more self-sufficient by teaching them new ways to perform life tasks. OT's also teach residents how to protect their muscles and joints and increase their strength and endurance.
  • Speech-language pathologists evaluate and treat residents for hearing, language, communication and swallowing disorders. The focus is on improving speech-language expression, comprehension, and oral motor skills for speech and safe eating.
