New partnerships benefit residents

The Lutheran Home: Belle Plaine has recently formed two new partnerships to benefit our residents. Partnerships include Pro Rehab to support our in house rehabilitation program and Associated Clinic of Psychology (ACP) to allow residents access to mental health, emotional and behavioral support services.

Pro Rehab
CaptureThrough this partnership, residents will have access to long term care, sub-acute, transitional care, home health and outpatient therapy. Pro Rehab provides physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech language pathology.

“We are focused on giving our residents the best care experience. The partnership with Pro Rehab allows us to continue to extend that concept to our rehabilitation program,” said Jacqueline Grimm, regional director of senior services for Minnesota care communities. “Having access to therapy within our care community allows our residents to take the next step toward healing.”

1The ACP is a leading national provider of geropsychological services. ACP’s approach to geriatric mental health incorporates not only individual assessment and therapy for residents, but an integrated team approach that may include recommendations for the resident’s entire care team, making sure that the improvements to their lives continue.

According to the CDC, it is estimated 20 percent of people 55+ experience some type of mental health concern. The most common conditions include anxiety, severe cognitive impairment and mood disorders such as depression or bipolar disorder.

“The collaboration with ACP allows our residents to access mental health services within their home,” said Jacqueline Grimm, regional director of senior services for the Minnesota care communities. “Mental, emotional and behavior health is essential to a person’s wellbeing. With ACP, we can continue to meet the needs of our residents and enhance the care provided to our residents. It is exciting to bring such a reputable and dedicated team to our home.”
