Amputee Rehab

Our nursing home offers a specialized rehab program for amputees. In 2007 Grandell was approached by two lower-extremity amputees who knew rehab was possible. In response to the community’s needs, Grandell installed a rail/rehabilitation harness system to help those who were told that they would never walk again. The rail/rehabilitation harness helps them stand and restore balance for walking. This special equipment eliminates the fear of falling and helps to restore confidence in patients so they can achieve faster progress and results. Grandell is the first facility in New York State to utilize this special equipment.

 

For all amputees, we treat the whole patient for their loss, not only assisting with their physical needs, but providing emotional counseling and support through our Social Work Department. Our team works with the patient’s doctor and surgeon throughout their rehab at Grandell. Our team works with our patients around the clock to assure the fullest program and care is provided during their stay. We can assist recent amputees as well as patients who have had an amputation in the past but may have the capability to achieve better functioning.​New amputees are measured for a “crash helmet” that is worn over the wound to protect the area while beginning initial rehab. We provide coordination for the correct fitting prosthesis, whether it is fitted at our facility or was fitted at the hospital.o achieve better functioning.
