Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Hamilton (RWJUH) Hamilton said Feb. 26 that it now offers a post-COVID-19 recovery program through its rehabilitative therapy services. The three-phase program uses the latest research to help patients recuperate from COVID-19 by customizing treatment specific to each patient to help them regain strength and functional abilities following COVID-19.
Telehealth and in-person treatments are available for physical, occupational and speech therapy. The team evaluates each patient’s needs and goals for their post-COVID-recovery and also screen for other needs with which RWJUH Hamilton can provide support.
The program includes physical therapy to reduce weakness, to improve breathing, gait and balance, and to build endurance. Occupational therapy helps patients to become more able to independently complete activities of daily living and cognitive rehabilitation and speech therapy focus on swallowing and speech difficulties.
