Great Steps℠ Program
Determining the cause of a fall is essential to finding the correct treatment, but too often the source of the problem is misdiagnosed or treated incorrectly. That’s why Great Lakes Caring developed the Great Steps℠ Fall Prevention Program.
The Great Steps℠ plan of care begins with a complete and comprehensive evaluation to determine the root cause of falls. Working in conjunction with your physician, our physical therapists perform a variety of tests and measures to accurately define specific dysfunction before beginning treatment.
Low Vision Care Program
Our Low Vision Care Program is the most revolutionary and innovative program available for treating individuals with macular degeneration. Clinicians developed the Low Vision Care Program in response to the growing need for clinical assessment, specialized therapy and environmental modifications.
VitalStim® Therapy is a specialized form of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES), specifically designed to treat dysphagia, or difficulty swallowing. Our speech therapists, certified in VitalStim® Therapy, use a non-invasive, portable device for external electrical therapy to re-educate the throat muscles on swallowing.
Our goal is to match the right technology with each patient's individualized plan of care, whether it's patient risk stratifcation and engagement, interactive voice response (IVR) calls or enhanced telehealth monitoring. Detection of early warning signs of a symptom exacerbation allows our team to intervene, helping keep you at home and out of the hospital.
