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.
