Hamilton, NJ (March 21, 2019) — Atrium Health & Senior Living prides itself on its “person-first” philosophy; delivering compassionate, quality care to their patients is a top priority. Communicating with and understanding individuals as they transition from the hospital to home is critical to providing effective care. Atrium Health has devised and implemented several strategies to optimize short rehabilitation stays with proven clinical and therapeutic capabilities to maximize dignity and aide in quick recoveries to return home sooner.
Michael Guglielmo, Administrator at Atrium Post Acute Care of Hamilton, comments, “Our patients each have their own unique vulnerabilities, so we take extra measures to provide them with the most personalized, compassionate, professional care and to ensure that they experience their rehabilitation with dignity. We strive to remain current on the latest research in the field and make sure that our personnel receive ongoing training in best practices. Most importantly, though, our patients depend on our positive attitudes and it is important for them to feel that enthusiasm.”
Instilling a sense of acceptance, community, and belonging in a positive environment is crucial to patients. Common respiratory diseases, such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), can make it difficult for patients to breathe, making everyday activities much more difficult and frustrating to complete and can cause patients to feel left behind by those surrounding him/her. Understanding the importance for patients to feel like themselves and knowing all that exercise and therapy can do for people, Atrium Post Acute Care of Hamilton provides rehabilitation designed to move the body and inspire the spirit. For some of our patients, that includes light exercise guided by professionals including stretching, walking, and resistance training to their favorite music as well as therapy using state of the art technologies and equipment. This helps to not only alleviate symptoms of respiratory diseases, it also increases the individual’s energy levels and self-esteem. Learning to manage these conditions in a way that truly connects to our patients can prevent the isolation and loss of dignity that comes with an inability to keep up once home.
