JOINT REPLACEMENT CARE
Many people aged 50-80 undergo surgery to replace a hip or knee joint. But once that’s done how do you recuperate? How do you get your mobility back? One obvious solution is to seek out specialists in joint replacement care.
If you live in the New York area you need look no further than Fairview Rehab & Nursing Home in Forest Hills. Our Home has an excellent reputation. We offer five-star 24-hour joint replacement care, and have top-notch therapists and consultants. All our highly skilled specialists are licensed and experienced.
It’s a good idea to talk to us about our joint replacement care programs even before you have surgery. That way you and your loved ones can get a good idea of what to expect. This, in turn, will put your mind at rest and smooth your transition to the care and therapy you need.
Comprehensive joint replacement care
We pride ourselves in offering a comprehensive care package tailored to the needs of the individual client. The first thing we do is give you a professional assessment by our knee and hip joint specialists. We listen to your concerns and address your worries.
We also like to talk to your loved ones to make sure they are in the picture, too. This is especially important if you are an outpatient, as they can then offer you advice and support as well.
If you require short-term care, perhaps because you have already undergone rehab elsewhere, we cater for that too. We are very flexible in the kind of care we offer. We create customized plans to help you improve your movements and relieve debilitating pain. At the end of the day we have your best interests at heart.
Some people, especially the elderly, may need extra nursing care after the replacement of a hip or knee joint. We provide the therapy you need in pleasant and convivial surroundings. Our staff are the ultimate kind carers, keen to ensure your comfort and good spirits at all times.
Fairview has state-of-the-art equipment and is able to offer a range of treatments to speed your joint replacement recovery.
Treatments provided include physical therapy, occupational therapy, and exercise plans. Safety is very important. Our therapists supervise your exercises to minimize the risk of you hurting yourself. We teach you about posture and the importance of not trying to do too much too fast.
Joint replacement care after hip and knee surgery requires time. After all, you have a new joint in your body and the body needs to adjust to that. Recovery can be lengthy and at times painful. Our specialists always make sure you have an appropriate pain relief program. Patience, coupled with determination, is an asset, and our friendly staff encourage you all along the way.
Furthermore, Fairview’s unique Re-Hospitalization Prevention Program helps reduce the number of hospital re-admits.
The aim of our joint replacement care program is to get you mobile again as quickly as possible. We want you to be able to do the activities you did before the operation – and more.
Our staff carefully monitor your progress and discuss it with you and your loved ones. If you need changes to your exercise program, we advise you and work with you every step of the way. You will never feel left out or abandoned at Fairview. We treat you like family and try to ensure you get the very best joint replacement care.
