Programs available to area residents — whether or not they live full-time in the lifeplan community
Through an innovative partnership with Aegis Therapies, Brandon Wilde is offering top-tier rehabilitation and therapy services on its beautiful campus in the Augusta, Ga. area.
Aegis’ WellConnected suite of therapy services at Brandon Wilde includes out-patient pre-surgery therapy, in-patient post-surgery rehabilitation, out-patient therapies, and LSVT BIG and LSVT LOUD, which improve communication and motor function in people with Parkinson’s disease.
Among Brandon Wilde’s offerings using Aegis’ WellConnected therapies is the in-patient Bridge to Home program, which provides further rehab services to those who may not qualify for skilled nursing care or may not be quite ready to go home from their rehab stay.
Everyone in the region has the opportunity to benefit from Brandon Wilde’s rehabilitation programs — even non-senior adults in need of post-illness, post-injury, or post-surgical care.
“There’s a common misconception out there that in order to receive the exceptional care that Brandon Wilde rehabilitation offers, you must live at Brandon Wilde,” says Larry Banks, Healthcare Administrator at Brandon Wilde. “In fact, our services are available to the general public. We also welcome new residents directly into our personal care, memory care, and skilled nursing neighborhoods.”
Physician Accountability and Outcomes
In addition to amazing care and hospitality, people receiving rehabilitation services at Brandon Wilde benefit from Aegis Therapies’ focus on day-to-day functional progress and best outcomes. The patient’s own primary care physician receives comprehensive information about progress during and after rehabilitation, ensuring continuity of care and accountability.
A commitment to clinical excellence has made Brandon Wilde a national leader in the percentage of short-stay residents who made improvements in function.
