In addition to the services of Hattie Ide Chaffee Home, we provide Restorative Assistance.
“Restorative care” refers to nursing interventions that promote the resident’s ability to adapt and adjust to living as independently and safely as is possible. This concept actively focuses on achieving and maintaining optimal physical, mental, and psychosocial functioning. Generally, restorative nursing programs are initiated when a resident is discharged from a formalized physical, occupational, or speech rehab therapy.
A resident may also be started on a restorative program when he/she is admitted to the facility with restorative needs, but is not a candidate for formalized rehab therapy, or when a restorative need arises during the course of a custodial stay. Restorative nursing does not require a physician’s order.
