BELLAIRE — Country Club Retirement Campus has tripled the size of its rehabilitation room and will host free Rehab Education Days each month for the general public so they can learn what to expect before, during and after surgery.
The Rehab Education Days will be hosted by Therapy Program Manager David Zwack, who will provide an overview of the surgical process, demonstrate a number of pre- and post-operative exercises, and answer questions.
The first Rehab Education Day will be held April 9 at noon and a light lunch will be provided.
“Rehab Education Day is really a free public service event designed to alleviate the worry that sometimes comes with surgery and prepare patients so that they can have a speedy and relatively pain-free recovery,” said Administrator Joe Zvosecz.
In addition to expanding the size of its rehabilitation room, Country Club Retirement Campus has added a variety of new equipment, including a mat table, treadmill, stationary bike, ergometer, parallel bars and specially designed supportive equipment for non-weight bearing residents.
The facility also features a fully equipped Occupational Therapy model kitchen and bathroom so residents can return to their own home.
The revamped therapy room will began accepting new patients March 1.
“The new rehabilitation room is another step in our commitment to expanding the top-notch service we deliver to our residents,” Zvosecz said. “We’re also in the processing of increasing the number of private rooms we currently have from 2 to 14.
Research shows that recovering from surgery in a ±private room results in faster recovery times, reduces risk of infection, enables a more quality rest, and enhances medical care for the patient.”
