The Pathways program focuses on functionally based therapies to address cognitive and life skill development.
The program establishes positive behavioral support to increase healthy, adaptive behaviors and address unsafe behaviors which interfere with successful
rehabilitation outcomes. Adults are assisted to maximize their independence at home and to facilitate a potential successful return to their community, work, or productive activity.
When a participant is first admitted, there will be a rigorous evaluation that includes assessment by a multi-disciplinary team. The team includes a
Primary Care Practitioner, Nurse, Neuropsychologist, Physical Therapist, Occupational Therapist, Speech Therapist, Activities Coordinator and Social Worker.
Nursing and Social Work Care:
Nursing Care is primarily focused on assisting participants to achieve their highest level of ability.
Our dedicated nursing team consists of Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA) who provide all of the basic cares. Registered Nurses (RN) supervise CNAs,
and are responsible for the distribution of medications and performing treatments. A Social Worker collaborates with RNs to coordinate care with other
disciplines, as well as ongoing assessment of the residents and evaluation of their care.
Nurses and the social worker are available to educate the participant and family about their health problems and treatment plan. This education
is essential to enable a participant to return home and resume their usual pattern of living if that goal is possible.
Medical Services: A physician is on site or on call full time and on an emergency basis to address the medical needs of residents.
Under the direction of the physician, residents receive frequent visits during times of acute illness as well as scheduled intermittent visits
for chronic problems.
Therapy services: Norwood has selected Greenfield Rehabilitation Agency to offer comprehensive Physical, Occupational and Speech therapy services
for program participants. They are dedicated to helping residents function at their highest ability level and improve their quality of life.
Individualized treatment programs identify and focus on specific impairments before they result in significant changes or declines.
Greenfield Rehab is committed to excellent patient outcomes, quality care and satisfaction. Greenfield ensures this by collaborating with the
treatment team including the participant, their family, their physician and Norwood staff.
Participants will also have the opportunity to participate in daily scheduled as well as non-scheduled activities, on and off the unit.
