Rehabilitation: The Road Home
Many patients with neurological disorders can benefit from rehabilitation therapy. King's Daughters offers both inpatient and outpatient services.
Our inpatient unit is located within King's Daughters Medical Center and is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities. To achieve CARF accreditation, a facility must provide each patient with at least three hours of therapy every day, which may include physical, occupational and speech therapies, depending upon the patient's particular needs.
The goal of inpatient rehab is to make it possible for the patient to return home as quickly and safely as possible. Our inpatient rehab unit serves about 450 patients annually. Of these, about half are recovering from a neurological disorder, including strokes and brain/spinal cord injuries.
Outpatient Therapy Makes a Difference!
We provide physical, occupational and speech therapy, along with hearing services, at our Outpatient Services Center, 480 23rd St. in Ashland. A full range of evaluative, preventive and rehabilitative services are available to adults and children.
- Physical therapists use therapeutic exercise to help patients regain strength and normal function.
- Occupational therapists help patients regain and improve coordination and skill, with the primary goals of basic self-care, return to work and re-integration into the community. Feeding, dressing and personal hygiene are emphasized.
- Speech therapists evaluate and treat communication challenges, language difficulties, swallowing, voice and fluency disorders.
- Audiologists evaluate and treat hearing disorders, including the patient's ability to process auditory stimuli.
