Sue Leugers, winner of
Dayton Dragons themed bucket.
Versailles Health Care Center recently participated in The 2013 Great Darke County Fair. Hundreds of fairgoers stopped by VHCC’s booth and played “Spin to Win” for a chance to spin the wheel and win a variety of VHCC novelty items, including tote bags, flyswatters, heart-shaped memo clips, and 7-day pill cases! The theme for this year’s VHCC booth was “PRE-pare for Your Success” and featured the Pre-Planning Rehab Options at The Rehab Clinic at Versailles Health Care Center for scheduled surgery.

Information was available explaining the best way to excel following surgery is by scheduling a short inpatient rehabilitation stay accompanied by outpatient therapy before and/or after at The Rehab Clinic at Versailles Health Care Center. The Rehab Clinic’s inpatient and outpatient rehabilitation programs are known for successful outcomes, and Joint Rehab is one of its specialties. The Rehab Clinic at Versailles Health Care Center offers the following conveniences to make a patient’s recovery more successful: Prehab, Preregistration, and Total Joint Replacement Class. Prehab is an individualized outpatient therapy program to optimize strength and endurance prior to surgery. This ensures peak rehab potential post-surgery. Preregistration is the process of completing inpatient admission paperwork prior to surgery to save time and hassle. The patient is then placed on a preferential list for the room of choice. The Total Joint Replacement Class is held the 4th Monday of each month and led by Dr. Chad Weber. This FREE monthly class prepares the patient for all aspects of joint surgery and rehabilitation.

The booth also featured the award winning Parkinson’s treatment program offered at Versailles Health Care Center. Fairgoers were able to watch an inspiring video of the Versailles Health Care Center’s 2012 “BIG” Parkinson’s Therapy Successes. The Parkinson’s program includes LSVT BIG and LOUD treatments, which are one-on-one treatments with a certified therapist, who creates an individualized plan to address each participant’s specific deficits. Upon completion of the program, each participant is given a success DVD that features their before and after performance. Since implementing the Parkinson’s treatment in 2011 at Versailles Health Care Center, over 125 patients have successfully completed the program. Versailles Health Care Center also offers a FREE monthly Power Over Parkinson’s class, open to people with Parkinson’s Disease and their families. In addition to the monthly Power Over Parkinson’s class, Versailles Health Care Center and YMCA of Darke County offer Delay The Disease fitness classes at the YMCA of Darke County, Versailles Facility. The classes are conducted by therapists from Versailles Health Care Center. Delay the Disease is a fitness program designed to empower people with Parkinson’s Disease by optimizing their physical function and helping to delay the progression of symptoms.

VHCC also raffled off a Dayton Dragons themed bucket, including four game day tickets, peanuts and Cracker Jacks. Congratulations to winner, Sue Leugers, of Versailles.
