If you found out that you were suffering from a serious heart condition, what would you think about while choosing a physician? Surely, insurance coverage and proximity to your home would be important. But, most important would be seeing a specialist who is highly knowledgeable when it comes to your specific heart condition!

Not all physical therapists have the same level of expertise when it comes to treating an older adult with very specific and complicated conditions. You need a certain type of therapist to safely and effectively treat your physical conditions and optimize your function a Geriatric Certified clinical specialist from FOX Rehabilitation. This is no different from making sure you see a Board Certified cardiologist for your heart condition.

Here are some quick facts:

  1. FOX Rehabilitation is home to the largest group of consolidated GCSs within private practice in the United States.
  2. The GCS certification is provided through the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties.
  3. Some of our GCS clinicians have been trained through a residency program much like a physician.
  4. There are less than 2000 total GCS clinicians in the US and 28 are employed by FOX Rehabilitation.
  5. In 2015, 215 US clinicians passed the GCS examination and 5 were FOX Rehabilitation employees.
  6. More than 10 clinicians are scheduled to take the GCS examination in 2016!

Many people believe that occupational therapy is primarily concerned with activities of daily living. While this is certainly true to a great extent, the lesser-known domain of practice for Occupational Therapy is called instrumental activities of daily living. These include executive functioning such as balancing a checkbook or paying bills, general housekeeping duties and all forms of community mobility.

Too often though, we find it difficult to address community mobility and transportation issues with our clients. To that end, we have developed the community mobility and community integration programs.

Community mobility is a critical area of occupation which promotes independence, spontaneity and personal identity.

Lack of community mobility may result in poor satisfaction with one's life role and can lead to increased isolation and depression. To address this critical area of occupation, the community mobility and community integration programs look closely at a person's ability to access their community via all forms of transportation. Factors such as visual acuity, visual perception, coordination of hands and feet, short-term memory, sustained and divided attention and concentration are all evaluated and addressed with an appropriate plan of care. The goal is to assist the client, their family, and caregivers in selecting the safest form of community mobility and transportation for the individual. Keeping our clients safe in the community is a primary and vital concern for all occupational therapists.

Caring for a loved one with dementia can post many challenges for families and caregivers.

Alzheimer's and other types of dementia result in individuals having increasing difficulty remembering things and behaving in their usual manner. Gradually, the person has difficulty with communication, thinking clearly, and performing their day-to-day activities with success and independence. In the early stages, caregivers are often able to assist the person with their daily needs. Over time, the disease begins to progress, robbing the individual of their former independence and abilities. This necessitates the caregiver step in to provide assistance that was never before necessary.

Caregivers may need to assist the person with dressing, getting in and out of the shower, or bathing. Many of these tasks are physically demanding however, the greatest challenges may be behavioral changes that frequently accompany the progression of dementia.

To better prepare the caregiver to address these needs and behaviors, we have developed the FOX Playbook for Caregivers: Tools for Dementia Management.

This program begins with a caregiver questionnaire which helps determine the greatest needs for the caregiver at that moment and moving forward. Other areas addressed are communication strategies, ADL management, activity engagement, dealing with aggression and hallucinations, and dealing with several other difficult behaviors The FOX Playbook for Caregivers also provides strategies that help caregivers themselves better deal with the situation at hand and the associated stress involved with this daunting task.
