Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy
Grane Hospice is a higher level of Hospice Care. We offer Physical Therapy, Speech Therapy and Occupational Therapy to Hospice patients in need of these services. Our RN Case Managers will contact our team of specialized Physical Therapists, Speech Therapists and Occupational Therapists who will work with you to provide Comfort for the Body, Mind and Soul.
Our Physical Therapists will evaluate your ability to move safely throughout your home or care facility. The Physical Therapist will also evaluate your pain level and provide the physical therapy needed to help relieve you of pain and will work with the Hospice team to provide the best pain management and therapy combination to meet your specific needs. A custom exercise program may be given to help improve symptoms and strengthen and maintain your physical capabilities. This is to help provide comfort and possibly extend the life of a loved one.
Our Speech Therapists will work with the patient and family to provide solutions for patients who have difficulty communicating with loved ones. Being able to communicate with family toward the end of life is extremely important and we establish the best alternative ways to do so. There also might be challenges with chewing and swallowing food. Our Speech Therapists will work with the patient, family and Hospice Care Team providing food and diet solutions to help maintain and possibly improve the quality of life.
Our Occupational Therapists will work with the patient, family and Grane Hospice Team to assess and implement ways for the patient to maintain as much independence as possible. Daily routine such as bathing, getting dressed, feeding and other duties can be challenging and our Occupational Therapist will formulate ways to make days more comfortable while maintaining independence. We find this helps with the patients outlook to maintain a positive attitude improving the quality and comfort for remaining life. The Occupational Therapist will evaluate and recommend the level of ability and will coordinate with the Grane Hospice Team to provide services to help increase comfort and quality of life for the patient.
