Benefits to Patients & Physicians
Each patient of our center is unique, and so is their need for care, which is why we work closely with patients and their doctors to create personalized recovery plans that benefit both in the following ways:
Let us help you get back to your life with cardiovascular rehabilitation services from the caring and dedicated professionals at Mission Healthcare at Renton. We have skilled services to support your recovery from a cardiac event, such as an angiogram, angioplasty, myocardial infarction (heart attack), or open heart surgery. Our interdisciplinary rehabilitation team can provide an essential, supportive transition between hospital and home.
Fall Prevention & Balance
An increased risk of falling is a common and hazardous side effect of health events such as a stroke or heart attack. That is why we provide fall-prevention training – to help build strength and balance during your recovery, and for your ongoing safety. A constant fear of falls can take away your sense of self-reliance, but having the support and expert guidance of our friendly therapists can help you reclaim your independence and move forward with greater confidence and ability.
Let our dedicated neurotherapists help you navigate the sometimes complicated path to recovery after a brain injury or disease, so you can get back your quality of life. We aid recovery from brain-related injuries and events, such as a stroke, aneurysm, tumor, disease, or blunt-force trauma, with proven techniques and technologies which include exercises, electrotherapy, and ultrasound, to repair damage and improve conductivity of the nerves.
Healing after an orthopedic surgery, joint replacement, or injury can be a long and difficult process, but with the help of our skilled rehabilitation team at Mission Healthcare at Renton, you can regain your ability and mobility in the comfort of a private suite with helpful care and housekeeping services. Your rehab team will utilize your personalized plan of care, which may include exercise, electrotherapy, ultrasound, and diathermy, to manage your pain and improve your post-surgical/post-injury outcome.
Short-Term Respite Care
For those who provide full-time care for a loved one, it can be hard to balance the needs of that person with other demands of life and family. Short-term Respite Care at Mission Healthcare at Renton can help. Our kind, compassionate caregivers are here to ensure that your loved one has the support and assistance they need in a respectful environment, while you take the time you need to rest and handle personal matters. Respite patients often enjoy their time here among the vibrant community and resort-style amenities.
There are many types of wounds and knowing how to properly care for them can be more complicated than you may realize. Each wound is unique, as is the overall wellness of the person who sustains it. To ensure that the proper recovery method is used, our skilled nursing team will create a personalized care plan based on your unique situation and desired outcome. This plan may include professional nursing, electrotherapy, ultrasound, and diathermy to manage pain and encourage proper healing. If you should require adaptive equipment, we will provide a personalized learning program so that you can become an expert in your own recovery and get back to your life with confidence.
