Masterclass: Restorative Care to Maintain and Improve Function

Restorative care is part of an ongoing nursing model and often follows rehabilitation. Licensed staff and professional caregivers provide restorative care to preserve a person’s optimum level of functioning and independence, which makes living their day-to-day lives as comfortable as possible.
 
Implementing restorative care into daily routines is essential for maintaining and improving function as individuals age. Restorative care can help individuals maintain their independence, optimize care resources, and enhance their overall quality of life.

Tune into our latest ComForConnections Masterclass episode, where Susan LaGrange, Pathway Health’s Chief Nursing Officer, and Tiffany Robinson, ComForCare Training Specialist, will dive into the role of restorative care in supporting increased function and independence for individuals. Tune in!
