New restorative program at care center aims to keep residents independent
by Leslie Ehrenberg
A new restorative program has been implemented at the Appleton Care Center. Care Center Director of Nursing (DON) Mitch Ejnik said the goal of this nursing driven program is to keep residents as independent as possible.
“This is not an ordinary restoration program through physical therapy. Traditional physical therapy works with people after a decline to bring them back to baseline. In this program we want to work with everyone before the decline,” said Ejnik.
New studies have shown seniors who exercise six to seven times a week for just 15 minutes a day not only benefit physically, but emotionally as well, explained Ejnik.
“These light exercises include the use of free weights and are in addition to the resident’s 15-minutes walking program,” he said.
Ejnik introduced the program idea to Rehab Coordinator Karissa Peterson, who was excited to implement it.
