Moving into a care community does not mean you give up or stop moving. Mission care communities are committed to keeping you moving! Restorative nursing services can help ensure that you will maintain your maximum functional capacity as outlined in the care plan.
Restorative therapy is done under the guidance of a therapy professional and designed to meet your individual needs. A specially trained, full-time, restorative aide will walk residents to meals, assist with transfers, assist with range of motion exercises, maintain splinting schedules to address contractures, and assist with swallowing techniques at mealtime for specific residents as recommended by speech therapy. RAs are responsible for monitoring and documenting any progress or regression in progress related to the care they provide on specified flow sheets, all under the supervision of a licensed nurse.
