My mother needed rehab after having her knee replaced. As would be standard protocol, she received physical and occupational therapy. But, they went the xtra step and provided speech therapy for cognitive retraining. Because the therapist worked on memory skills/problem solving/comprehension of what she hears & reads, she became more safe, more compliant, more mobile more quickly. (She had been in another adequate facility and did not make progress. There was concern that she might not be able to return home. She received physical and occupational therapy but not speech.) My mother's Alzheimers/dementia baseline is mild but any surgery or illness can cause a decline. Because she transferred to a facility with a Team cognitive approach (nursing followed therapist's suggestions so there was good follow through), My mother returned home and at a cognitie level better than prior to surgery.
