Physical therapy provides many benefits which extend beyond the standard assistance and socialization that the majority of retirement communities provide to their residents, and when combined with regular health screenings will ensure that members are always receiving the help they need.
About Our Physical Therapy
The therapy services provided by Aston Gardens At Sun City Center come in many forms, which include speech therapy, occupational therapy, and respiratory therapy. Each type has a distinct purpose and can be provided in the comfort and privacy of one’s residence. This treatment is also available for long or short term. Each member of our community can be evaluated to find out which option works best for them.
Benefits of Having a Physical Therapy in Your Retirement Community
Having a physical therapy onsite provides a number of benefits, such as:
- Focusing on the movement of large muscles
- Helping retirees who have reduced leg or arm strength
- Enhancing balance and coordination
- Increasing muscle endurance and tone
- Lowering the risk of falls
- Encouraging elders to independently perform tasks
Our restorative therapy in particular is popular among residents because it encompasses a range of fun exercises that are designed to help residents increase both their mobility range as well as their overall strength. Occupational therapy prioritizes hygiene as well as fine motor mobility, which is essential for aging retirees who have movement issues due to either stroke or arthritis. Working with our occupational therapists will teach them new ways to perform daily functions.
When Should You Consider Moving into a Retirement Community?
Aston Gardens At Sun City Center is perfect for those that want multiple types of therapy. For instance, our speech therapy services focus on language and can assist those who have difficulty chewing food or swallowing, along with those who are suffering from short-term memory loss.
Respiratory therapy is designed to help patients who have difficulty breathing, especially those who are suffering from pneumonia which is a common problem among elders. Respiratory therapists use massages and other techniques to loosen mucus so that it is easier for patients to breathe.
