MEDFORD, N.Y., July 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- It has always been the goal at The LUX at Medford to assist residents in regaining their maximum level of function and to enable their return home after regaining the highest possible level of independence. The goal became a reality when the top Long Island nursing home completely overhauled its rehabilitation room, transforming it into the most modern in the area. Now known as The LUX, the 6,000 square foot rehab suite boasts the most current and effective rehabilitative technologies, with expert therapists providing customized treatment plans.
The extra large rehab suite is open, airy, free-flowing and comfortable. It is equipped with the latest rehabilitative technologies, including the OmniVR Virtual Rehabilitation System, Litegait (for those who have difficulty standing or walking to alleviate a fear of falling), virtual reality treadmills that simulate cross country settings to motivate residents and more. Residents also have the opportunity to practice how to enter and exit a vehicle by engaging the custom designed Medford PT Cruiser, located inside The LUX.
The most prominent feature of The LUX at Medford is the Activities of Daily Living Apartment. Designed to recreate a fully functioning apartment, residents receive real-life training with the goal of being able to return to their homes with as much independence as possible. Equipped with a fully furnished bedroom, state-of-the-art kitchen and marble bathroom, the apartment gives residents the experience of going through a daily routine with the assistance of a staff member to ensure they are comfortable and confident in their activities. Additionally, residents simulate shopping at Giella's Marketplace, giving them practice in a vital daily activity. Lastly, residents get their range of motion back with The LUX's mini-golf course and shuffleboard court.
