For seniors, one of the best methods to prevent deterioration is through sustaining patient functionality. Studies prove that individuals who stay both physically and mentally active as they age remain healthier than those who don't. But often patients fall victim to deteriorating conditions due to lack of functional activities and follow up after being discharged from successful physical therapy treatments.
That's why CAC-Florida Medical Centers offer them coordinated health programs. One such is “La Buena Vida," a program that manages the therapeutic needs of patients through a tailored exercise program. This customizable program puts a core focus on education and activities, as developed by our Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation Medical Director, meaning patients will be pushed to remain active while enjoying themselves.
This patient-centric approach allows CAC-Florida Medical Centers to service patients suffering from multiple disease states and group their treatment plans based on common conditions or degree of functional limits. Our patients benefit by being able to reduce risk of falls, minimizing the loss of bone mass and muscular atrophy, while reducing the impact of illness and chronic disease.
