Children's Specialized Hospital Long Term Care
Therapy Overview
The Long- Term Care Therapy Program is designed with these Goals:
  • Maintain and support function
  • When possible:
    • Reduce, slow and minimize loss of function in cases of debilitating progressive diseases or
    • Increase or support function when new abilities or developmental progress are demonstrated.
 
An Individualized Care Plan is designed for your child
A team of licensed therapists conducts a full assessment of your child, at time of admission, and then develop an Individualized Care Plan. After this initial assessment, we continually work to achieve your child’s goals by observing your child and identifying major changes in status that may necessitate a revised Individualized Care Plan. We will also reevaluate your child quarterly and annually and make changes as necessary to their Individualized Care Plan.
 
Licensed therapy professionals oversee each Individualized Care Plan
Licensed therapy professionals (Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Recreational Therapy, and/or Child Life) oversee Restorative Nursing Assistants and Group Therapeutic sessions. Also, if identified in your child’s Care Plan, Individual Therapeutic sessions involve designated licensed clinician(s) consisting of Restorative Nursing Assistant, Rehabilitation Technology, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Recreational Therapy, and/or Child Life)
 
Traditional vs. Non-Traditional Therapy
Your child's therapy goes beyond the traditional therapy mentioned above (Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Speech Therapy, Recreational Therapy, and/or Child Life) in the Pediatric Long Term Care center. We know through years of experience that your child benefits from all the therapies we provide, whether they are Traditional or Non-Traditional Therapy.
