Subacute Rehabiliation

Geriatric Oncology Prehab and Rehab along with Traumatic Brain Injury and Orthopedic Injuries

Broad Spectrum Rehabilation with A Focus on Older Adults Facing Malignancy

Subacute rehabilitation is instrumental in enhancing the lives of older adults by delivering concentrated and intensive rehabilitation services to those recovering from illness, injury, or surgery. Through targeted efforts, such programs facilitate the recovery of physical and functional abilities, promoting independence in daily activities. Customized care plans, tailored to the individual's specific needs and goals, maximize the effectiveness of treatment. A multidisciplinary approach involving healthcare professionals ensures comprehensive care, addressing physical, cognitive, and emotional well-being. Subacute rehabilitation also emphasizes pain management, reducing the impact of pain on engagement in rehabilitation activities. It aims to prevent complications associated with immobility and recovery, such as pressure sores and muscle atrophy. Cognitive rehabilitation exercises enhance memory and problem-solving skills for those with cognitive impairments. The fostering of social interaction in supportive environments positively impacts emotional well-being, alleviating feelings of isolation and depression. Additionally, education and support empower older adults and their families for continued recovery at home, making subacute rehabilitation a pivotal contributor to a successful and fulfilling recovery process.

As I focus on geriatric cancer care , I understand the importance of rehabilitation in the treatment process. Geriatric patients often have multiple co-morbidities that affect their physical and functional abilities. Rehabilitation can help these patients regain their strength, mobility, and independence, which in turn can improve their quality of life. It can also reduce the risk of complications, such as falls and infections, and help manage symptoms like pain and fatigue. Rehabilitation is an essential component of geriatric cancer care, and I am committed to providing my patients and their families with the best possible care and support throughout their treatment journey.
