Keeping it meaningful and real are key elements to how AFFIRMA delivers therapy to its residents.
Through a personalized rehabilitation therapy program, AFFIRMA looks at what inspires the individual. With this in mind, our rehabilitation therapists customize specific programs around what motivates and interests the resident. Whether it is gardening, housekeeping, or just managing our activities of daily living, we make sure our programs are personalized around the interests of our residents. We like to keep physical therapy fun and functional so that our residents and their families do not feel burdened or overwhelmed by the rehab therapy process.
Designing a Functional Treatment Approach
Many therapy departments and therapy companies are reflective of an impairment approach to treatment with heavy emphasis on equipment. While such modalities are important, at AFFIRMA, our therapy department reflects a functional treatment approach which has a vastly different configuration. A Life Skills Therapy Department is one that encompasses home like settings and areas such as a kitchenette, training bathroom, sitting area, and bed or bedroom area.
