Cardiac & Pulmonary Therapy with VTR

The Villas Senior Care Community provides therapy and skilled nursing care to seniors. Our community has been a leader in providing the quality care that seniors and their families expect and deserve for more than 30 years. Villas Total Rehab (VTR) is a comprehensive therapy program that addresses a wide variety of injuries, illnesses and diagnoses that seniors encounter. VTR addresses orthopedic needs including joint replacements, strokes and other neurological deficits, pulmonary and cardiac diagnoses, among others.

Pulmonary and Cardiac Therapy treatments with VTR focus on patients with cardiac or pulmonary conditions, building up the patient's stamina and endurance, so they can become stronger. Many patients with cardiac or pulmonary conditions also have other conditions or diagnoses that can make rehabilitation more difficult. An interdisciplinary approach of nursing and therapy is necessary to ensure the patient is receiving all levels of care needed during their stay

For cardiac therapy, upper body and lower body exercise equipment build range of motion and flexibility; pneumatic body exercises increase endurance through resistive movements. Nursing staff and therapy staff work together to monitor the patient's vital signs. Other therapy exercises include testing a patient's balance to determine what level of assistance the patient will need during their therapy treatment.

Patients with pulmonary conditions also work to build strength and endurance. An occupational therapist provides therapy with an upper body exerciser to increase lunch capacity, while working to help them improve breathing and function. Therapy also promotes independence and confidence through education. The educational portion of therapy allows patients to learn how to modify their lifestyle and conserve their energy while doing their daily activities.
