Notes from Nursing
October is Physical Therapy Month. We are grateful to our exceptional therapy staff at Millennium Therapy who work hard at keeping our residents as independent as possible. Physical therapists work with patients with many different health conditions. Therapists provide rehabilitation after a hospital stay, help to provide relief to patients with acute or chronic pain, and work with patients to improve balance and mobility. Physical therapists are also an important piece of our fall prevention program. Medicare pays for 80% of therapy services if you are enrolled in Medicare Part B services, have a doctor's order, and have a qualifying condition with potential for improvement. Many insurances will cover the 20% copay to cover the cost of therapy after the annual deductible has been met. Please let us know if you feel your loved one would benefit from therapy services.
