Senior Housing News Interviews Infinity Rehab President About IBM Research Project

“For Infinity, bundled payment programs such as the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) program already have raised the stakes. In these programs, hospitals are responsible for controlling costs over a whole acute/post-acute care episode for certain orthopedic patients, making it crucial that they refer to high-performing rehabilitation providers.

ENCOURAGING SELF-MANAGEMENT

In 2010, I attended a conference on exercise and physical activity in aging.  The programming, which was excellent, focused almost exclusively on the impact of aging on body systems, as well as the latest evidence on exercise prescription. This conference inspired me to pursue the Certified Exercise Expert for Aging Adults (CEEAA) course series offered through the Academy of Geriatric Physical Therapy.

Brianne Salvati, OT

To continue our celebration of #OTMonth, we are sharing stories from Occupational Therapists and Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants about why they chose their fulfilling career and the moments that re-enforce their decision to work every day to enhance the life of every person they serve.   I went in to the profession somewhat blindly.
