Physical Therapy improves quality of life for many—but there is a need for new equipment!
Milestone’s mission is to help each Individual reach their fullest potential and live as full a life as possible. The Interdisciplinary team includes both physical and occupational therapists. A PT/OT program is designed for each Individual to meet their needs. Many times rehabilitation therapy is needed after an extended hospital stay, and can keep a person ambulatory. Chris’ family gained firsthand knowledge about the difference a strong PT/OT department can make after she returned to Milestone after an extended hospital stay. Before she had to go to the hospital Chris was able to walk, but after a month of being mostly bedridden she returned to Milestone non-ambulatory. With guidance, work, time and care from the PT/OT team, she was able to regain the ability to walk with the same level of assistance as before she entered the hospital.
There is currently a need for Standers, along with gravity, the standers help stimulate bone growth & helps maintain bone strength. The straightening & stretching of the leg muscles & tendons also help an Individual maintain lower extremity mobility allowing for better personal care and aiding in the potential for ambulation. The change in perspective (going from sitting to standing) stimulates brain activity, visual motor & proprioceptual skills.
Our current Standers are over 20 years old and we need additional ones.
