Rehabilitation services at PortagePointe have recently been improved because of a strengthened partnership between PortagePointe and Portage Health Rehab. The rehab team designed a specialty gym inside of the Pewabic House, which makes rehabilitation more convenient for PortagePointe elders.
“We have always provided services to PortagePointe elders,” said Mark Randell, director of rehab at Portage Health. “This addition increases our emphasis on providing rehabilitations services right in their home.”
The rehab room includes exercise equipment and treatment tables. It also adds the capabilities for therapists to work hand-in-hand with elders, and their usual caretakers in a comfortable and convenient location.
“The on-site gym has truly enhanced the rehabilitative services we’re able to provide at PortagePointe,” Randell said.
For PortagePointe elders, it has meant a more comfortable place to regain their strength and function.
“Many of our elders prefer the privacy and location of the new gym,” said Elaine Archambeau. “Since the gym has been installed, we have seen an increased satisfaction in the elders going home after rehab. It’s been a very positive addition to our facility.”
