Post Surgical Recovery

Depending upon your type of surgery, Fahey Rehab’s team of rehabilitation specialists will create a recovery program to meet your specific and changing needs.

The Vacuum Assisted Closure (Wound VAC treatment) clinical therapy dramatically reduces healing time for chronic wounds while significantly reducing pain.

Our staff team supports and motivates patients to become healthy through lifestyle changes, therapy education, medication, physical rehabilitation and pulmonary exercise. We treat several acute and chronic lung disorders including:

Stroke Recovery

The stroke recovery rehabilitation program at Fahey Rehab encompasses several treatment techniques including exercise, muscle training, speech therapy, occupational therapy and swallowing exercises. We also focus on the emotional state of patients because depression is common following a stroke.

Wound Care

The wound care therapy services at Fahey Rehab utilize the Vacuum Assisted Closure or V.A.C. clinical therapy procedure, which dramatically reduces healing time for chronic wounds of geriatric and rehab patients. Our long-term intravenous therapy and respiratory therapy programs also help to aggressively treat infection and disease.

Therapeutic Recreation

Therapeutic recreation at Fahey Rehab provides residents with a variety of cognitive, physical and social pursuits to enhance health, recovery, functional abilities and quality of life.  Programs are organized into individual, small and large group activities to meet the needs and interests of all residents.  All activities are used to create meaningful and purposeful engagement.

Intravenous medication therapy is an effective way to administer medication directly into a patient’s vein.
