  • Combine stretching, aerobic exercise, strengthening, tai chi and relaxation techniques through weekly exercise classes

At the hospital Our specialist Occupational Therapist’s aim to improve areas of personal care, work or leisure that are becoming difficult.

  • Hand therapy including splinting and exercise programmers
  • Assessment and treatment of cognitive deficits

At our hospital each individual is given specific therapies in Ayurveda that can help to reduce problems associated with Parkinson’s diseases.

At the hospital, Our specialist Speech And Language Therapists will help persons with Parkinson’s disease on maintaining and improving as much of their communication and swallowing abilities as possible.

These goals can be achieved through:

  • Develop strategies and exercises with persons with Parkinson’s disease and their families to help with volume and speed of speech, breathing, facial expressions and articulation.
  • Use of specific treatment techniques such as Pitch Limiting Voice Treatment/Lee Silverman Voice Treatment when indicated.
  • Helping persons with Parkinson’s disease adapting their communication styles to the different settings they communicate in, for example, if they work in a very noisy office where a soft or quiet voice is difficult to hear, or if they work in a very quiet environment that might not lend itself to speaking loudly.
  • Assessment and treatment of swallowing disorders that the persons with Parkinson’s disease may experience.
  • Help persons with Parkinson’s disease navigating and perhaps using the latest technological options, such as a computer, voice amplifier or an app (computer applications or programs designed to do a specific action) on their mobile phone or tablet or advising them with the augmentative and alternative communication devices.

Studies show that patients treated in an acute rehabilitation hospital achieve better outcomes than those in other care settings.We will achieve in time that a greater improvement during their stay and a higher level of functional independence upon discharge , based on national benchmark that measure criteria such as locomotion, cognitive ability and activities of daily living
