Patients discharged from acute facilities often need daily living assistance, increased staff support, and clinical monitoring. The influx of residents with complex medical needs is creating new challenges for the staff in assisted and independent living communities.

Radial provides on-site clinical evaluations and treatment in collaboration with the patient’s care team, including the patient, family and primary care physician. Radial’s providers treat he “whole person,” with an added emphasis on function, mobility and quality of life. The goal is to maximize physical functioning, greatly decrease or eliminate pain, and foster independence.

Our providers collaborate with the entire care team to deliver comprehensive care to patients in assisted living and independent living facilities, all while reducing the burden on staff, reducing the cost of health care, and improving resident satisfaction. Our expert rehab physicians and advanced practice providers offer treatments, procedures and programs to give residents greater opportunities for a higher quality of life.

Collaboration with care teams and implementation of Radial’s specialty programs assist our community partners in meeting their quality metric goals and state survey requirements for resident care.

What We Do

PM&R is often referred to as the “quality of life” specialty because it’s emphasis is on prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disorders and medical conditions that affect the daily function and level of independence. Radial’s providers do NOT take the place of the Primary Care Physician, our physiatrists collaborate closely with each patient’s entire care team.

Evaluate

Radial providers are experts in recognizing that subtle changes in mobility, self-care, behavior or mood may lead to a slow or rapid decline in function. These must be recognized and assessed early for a rehabilitation treatment plan of prevention or restoration to be maximally effective.

Treat

Our providers design personalized care plans for each patient, track and document their progress, and continuously identify any barriers to improvement.

Collaborate

Radial Health providers collaborate with your staff, leadership, caregivers, and other physicians to ensure the best care for patients. With the cooperation of the care team, our providers manage the patient’s rehabilitation/restoration, set goals, and facilitate easy transitions to the next step in their care.
