Hemodialysis Rehab Care​

In some cases, patients with rehabilitation needs have additional health considerations, such as hemodialysis needs. We offer a special program for hemodialysis patients requiring rehab. Hemodialysis patients with rehab needs can expect:

  • ​Daily care by a physician – this can include the patient’s nephrologist.

  • Physical, occupational and/or speech therapy prior to hemodialysis on dialysis days.

  • Hemodialysis occurring after 4 p.m.

  • A dialysis team that works closely with the rehabilitation team to coordinate the hemodialysis based on the patient’s rehabilitative needs.

  • ​Time for the patient to recover from hemodialysis prior to intensive therapies the following day.​

Stroke Rehabilitation

We have developed a special program to maximize functional outcomes for our stroke rehab patients. This comprehensive program offers individualized treatment and education for the stroke survivor, utilizing the latest rehabilitation techniques and state-of-the-art technology. The program incorporates a standardized, inter-disciplinary approach to stroke rehabilitation and is the only stroke program in Greater Cincinnati accredited by CARF International as an Inpatient Rehabilitation Stroke Specialty program.

The program is covered by most major insurance providers, including Medicare. Treatment focuses on:

  • Maximize mobility and independence

  • Improve activities of daily living (ADLs)

  • ​Promote a positive self-image

  • Prevent other possible complications

  • Manage bowel and/or bladder dysfunctions

  • Address psychological and/or social issues 

The primary goal of the program is to prepare the patient for returning home independently or with assistance from a care provider, specifically focusing on the individual’s ability to:

  • Walk or use a wheelchair safely

  • Perform daily activities (i.e., eating, grooming, dressing, bathing and homemaking)

  • Swallow properly

  • Communicate using speech/language skills

  • ​​Retain and interpret information and make sound decisions​

Stroke Support Groups

Although everyone’s experience is different, meeting other stroke survivors or caregivers who understand what you are going through can help you throughout your recovery.  In addition to providing social opportunities, support groups promote wellness, provide encouragement and motivation, deliver education and help members connect with local resources.
