At Dogwood New Albany, we are pleased to provide on-site physical therapy services through an agreement with Performance Rehab. This service provides residents convenient access to certified physical and occupational therapists.
Multiple articles and studies suggest that seniors benefit from exercise and activities that allow them to remain as physically independent as possible. We also know that common aches and pains left untreated can become prematurely debilitating and lead not only to other physical problems, but emotional ones as well. Join one of Performance Rehab’s weekly fitness classes to improve your physical, mental and social health.
One of the simple and best ways to improve the health and life of a senior is the proper management of their medication. However, it is not always easy to do. Remembering to take medicine, remembering whether medicine has been taken, and taking medicine and ordering prescription refills at the proper time are just some of the challenges seniors frequently encounter.
Our staff is available to assist residents at their request with their medication needs which may include assistance with monitoring blood pressure, heart rate, and blood sugar as instructed by their physician. Additionally the staff is always available to assist our residents with ordering and refilling of their medications, as well as arranging doctor appointments.
