Kent Rehabilitation has earned CARF Accreditation in the area of Amputee Specialty. This accreditation values the program's specialty focus on: functional independence, social skills, quality of life, and support services for the patient and family affected by an amputation. In order to earn the Amputee Specialty designation, the rehabilitation program goes through an intensive accreditation survey.
Health promotion and screenings, as well as preventative care and health care delivery, are also integral elements of the rehabilitation department.
Health promotion and screenings, as well as preventative care and health care delivery, are also integral elements of the rehabilitation department. The efforts of our team, which includes our Medical Director, Clinical Coordinator, Nursing Staff, and Physical and Occupational Therapists, focus treatment on:
The Rehabilitation Center at Kent provides a customized approach to each patient, providing interdisciplinary care on the road to stroke recovery. Many of Kent's rehab patients are patients after an amputation; therefore, the therapists have the experience and knowledge to work with amputee patients, utilizing various innovative techniques and skills.
Kent Acute Rehabilitation Unit is an integral part of the continuum of care for patients after an amputation and again for prosthesis training. The intensive therapy during this time maximizes function and successful outcomes. Following inpatient rehabilitation, many of our amputee patients receive Outpatient Physical Rehabilitation at one of our Outpatient Clinics in East Greenwich or Pawtucket. Following therapy, many patients return for a monthly Amputee Information group at our Outpatient Clinic in East Greenwich, which becomes integral to ongoing recovery. We seek to establish an ongoing relationship for continued healing and rehabilitation.
