A variety of health care professionals work with patients during their time with us. They include case managers, physicians, dieticians and nutritionists, social and emotional therapists, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and certified nursing assistants. Our certified interdisciplinary team is dedicated to ensuring all of our patients’ needs are met.
In addition to the professionals listed above, patients spend much of their time working with the rehabilitation team to regain skills that may have been lost. This team also consists of physical therapists and certified physical therapist assistants, occupational therapists and certified occupational therapist assistants, as well as speech/language pathologists.
Upon discharge to home, the health care team educates each patient and their family on properly administering medication and continuing rehabilitation to maintain the progress that was achieved at Ridgewood Manor.
