Rockingham Manor has announced a new program developed to provide treatment for those who wish to return to a more independent environment. “Back on Track,” a new interdisciplinary program, will include aggressive therapy that may include occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy, medication management, dietary consultation and skilled nursing.
This program was developed to include the use of new ACP therapy equipment. This equipment was developed specifically for the complex needs of aging adults using non-invasive, medication-free therapies. The programs have been used with the elderly for over a decade and among professional athletes for nearly 30 years to accelerate recovery following injury.
“Back on Track is specifically designed for short-term stay residents,” said Chad Colby, facility administrator. “Our therapy department has the talent, experience, and equipment to service residents of the community, right here in Richmond County. Too many members of our community do not realize what Rockingham Manor has to offer.”
The “Back on Track” program name also ties in with Rockingham’s place in racing history. The name does not just signify a racing term, it signifies a strength in commitment to getting residents back on their feet and back to their communities.
The checkered flag is an integral part of the program design. The checkered flags inform staff members that that resident is working on goals towards their discharge. Goals can be communicated to any staff member working with that resident and the staff member may be able to offer tips, advice, or can help the resident work on some of their goals. Upon completing the goals and prior to discharge the resident will be awarded the checkered flags. The checkered flags are on a pin and are an outward sign that the resident preparing for discharge can be proud of their dedication.
