Recovering from a stroke is a lifelong process that typically begins with formal rehabilitation. At The Grand, stroke recovery therapy aims to restore independence by improving physical, mental and emotional functions. While we offer stroke programs in all of our facilities, The Walter Strauss Stroke Center is our most specialized location yet.
To be worthy of The Grand name, our cardiac therapy programs are truly extensive and comprehensive, focusing on the integration of exercise, behavioral modification and education. Specialists at our facilities create individualized plans of action designed to enable individuals with heart disease to best improve their condition and overall quality of life.
The repair and replacement of hips, knees and other joints are major surgeries that require extensive post-surgical rehabilitation, therapies and treatment. It is the quality of the post-surgical program that is the key to regaining health and returning to prior levels of function. Individual factors such as muscle strength, body weight and pain tolerance levels are also primary components of a personalized treatment plan. Our post-surgery orthopedic care programs concentrate on restoring health and stability to the musculoskeletal system, including the muscles, ligaments, tendons, and connective tissues that enable the body to perform its regular physical activities, so guests can once again live at prior levels of function.
Our qualified therapists offer the highest levels of effective physical and occupational therapy and speach therapy in New York State. They assess each individual guest and develop a personalized care plan using the most clinically advanced treatment techniques to promote the ability to move, reduce pain and restore function. By staffing a full team of therapists at each facility, The Grand provides each guest the best possible therapy program and best possible results.
Each one of our facilities maintains a staff of licensed physicians who are available to consult guests and their families regarding specific health needs and concerns. Physicians are available every day of the week.
To prevent infection and skin breakdown under tracheostomy tube and ties, careful daily care of the trach site is needed. At The Grand, such proactive maintenance is a specialty, with our partner physicians and nurses providing skilled tracheostomy care at many of our locations throughout New York.
As experts in Specialty Care, we understand some guests require greater expertise and attention than is usually offered at many other facilities. Our Complex Medical Care Program provides a wealth of services in one site. From pain management to wound treatment and so much more, The Grand offers all services/procedures needed.
Losing a limb is a traumatic and difficult experience. Our facilities feature skilled and compassionate professionals who offer a full range of specialized programs for amputees. Grief counseling, recovery from surgical complications and skin problems relating to artificial limbs are some of the concerns we handle with extreme sensitivity.
All of our facilities utilize the latest wound care technologies, including the VAC treatment, the latest advancement in wound closure therapy where indicated. This treatment minimizes hospitalization, increases outpatient comfort and achieves dramatic results. By applying pressure directly to the wound, we are able to remove the fluid that causes swelling, stimulate cellular growth, increase blood flow, and promote an increased healing response.
We know it’s not always easy to visit a loved one. That’s why we offer a complimentary shuttle service to bring you to their facility. Our shuttles are driven by experienced drivers to ensure your comfort, safety and peace of mind. Never wait for cabs or search for parking; whenever you’re ready to visit, you’re just a phone call away.
We are quite famous for our specialized medical diet services. At each facility, we design a series of specialized menus to fit special guest needs. Allergies, intolerances, medical requirements and even personal preferences are thoroughly reviewed, and a team of nurses, food services staff and caregivers work together to help eliminate or minimize exposure to specified foods.
The Grand offers excellent options for guests seeking clinical nutrition therapy, an essential component of comprehensive health care. Individuals with a variety of conditions and illnesses can improve their health and quality of life by receiving nutrition therapy from a qualified medical nutrition therapist. Our therapists counsel guests on behavioral and lifestyle changes that impact long-term eating habits, empowering them to live healthier and safer lives.
