neuron.jpgIndividuals who participate in this level of programming require intensive skilled therapies to re-establish basic skills. Patients participating in this level of programming generally require supervision for 16-24 hours and need assistance for facility mobility, orientation, safety awareness, and basic activities of daily living.  They may also require adaptive equipment for mobility and or basic communication (i.e., an augmentative communication device –AAC).  Generally, patients discharge to the family home with significant support, to a group home, or long-term care facility after completing post acute rehabilitation at TLC.  This level of programming seeks to improve basic cognitive, psychosocial, safety, self care and physical skills.  These basic skills include:

  • Basic ADL training to include dressing, grooming, feeding, toileting, and bathing
  • Cognitive skills training for orientation, memory, safety and basic problem-solving      
  • Compensatory strategy development for organization of basic information (personal information, daily schedule, etc.) and use of sequences/checklists for ADL activities
  • Aerobic conditioning, physical strengthening, and flexibility
  • Transfer training for basic, level surface transfers
  • Balance and gait training for in-home ambulation
  • Recreation and leisure skills training
  • Basic social skills training
  • Speech production (or use of augmentative communication device if needed)
  • Swallowing safety
  • Toilet training (bathroom schedule)
