Q: What are the benefits
of using a compounding
A: Compounding allows us to prepare medications while meeting
each patient’s individual needs,
whether it’s a nonstandard dosage,
or a request for gluten-, preserva-tive- or dye-free formulations. We
also create transdermal gels and
suppositories for customers who
have difficulty swallowing. In areas such as hormone replacement
therapy, practitioners are able to
prescribe the exact strength of
each required component, instead
of simply going with a “
cookie-cut-ter approach.” It’s not just people
who benefit, either. Medicating
pets can be quite challenging.
With customized strengths, sizes,
dosage forms and flavors (chicken,
beef or fish), we provide greater
convenience for pet owners, resulting in greater success administering the medications.
effectively and efficiently occur
in acute inpatient rehabilita-
tion facilities (IRFs), such as the
Acute Rehabilitation Unit at St.
Joseph’s Wayne Hospital or the
inpatient rehab services offered
at St. Joseph’s Regional Medical
Center. Studies have shown that
IRF patients have higher rates of
return to community living and
greater functional recovery.
Q: What are the benefits of an
acute inpatient rehab facility
for poststroke patients?
A: The benefits of IRF poststroke care mainly center around
intensity of therapy and physician support. An IRF offers a
hospital-level continuum of
care with 24 hour/day rehab
under the direct supervision of a
rehabilitation physician. Patients
receive at least three hours of
therapy per day, five days per
week (many times seven days).
The nurses at an IRF are certified in rehabilitation, as well. The
new AHA/ASA guidelines stress
that treatment at an IRF should
be the first choice for poststroke
patients whenever possible.

We are Charlotte and Wayne
McAffee and our happy
retirement story began
a little over 19 years ago
because that’s when we
discovered Arbor Glen.
With the support of our three
daughters, we became
founding members of the
community. Right away,
we knew it was going to be
much more than a building.
The people were authentic,
their lives interesting and
we all genuinely cared for
one another. Today, we’re
pleased to say not much
WE BELONG HERE.
SO DO YOU.
